Tom Holland's presence on social media was fun and entertaining but the actor has decided to quit the platforms and focus on his mental well-being instead as he "spirals" when he reads "things" about him.

Sharing the annoucement video on his official Instagram account, Holland said that he was struggling to find the right words before recording (and posting) it on his handle. 

"... I find Instagram and Twitter to be overstimulating, to be overwhelming..." Holland said, and added that he gets "caught up" and spirals when he reads things written about him online. 

"It’s very detrimental to my mental state. So I decided to take a step back and delete the app," the actor said, who has been missing in action for a while now. His "brief return to Instagram" was only to announce his exit from the platform and give a shoutout to stem4: a charity that supports positive mental health in teenagers, and provides them with information around the same. 

"... I know that asking for help and seeking help isn’t something that we should be ashamed of," shared the Uncharted star, before adding, "but it is something that is much easier said than done."

Holland, who has been availing the educational tools provided by the charity in the form of apps, has found the initiative to be "fantastic" and "really helpful".

"Thanks for your love and support. I love you all and I’ll speak to you soon," Tom Holland concluded, before "dissappearing again" from Instagram.
