– I end up in a spiral when I read things about myself online. In the end, it’s very harmful to my mental health, says Tom Holland in a new video on Instagram.

The actor, who plays Spider-Man, has been absent from social media in recent weeks.

Holland explained that he finds platforms like Twitter and Instagram overstimulating and overwhelming.

– So I decided to take a step back and delete the app.

He only took to Instagram to share the decision with his fans, saying he’s staying offline to take care of himself.

The actor says in the video that he thinks there is a terrible stigma surrounding mental health.

– Asking for help and seeking help is not something we should be ashamed of, but it is something that is much easier said than done, he says.

In the video, Holland shares many mental health apps that he also uses himself.
