The new gen Spider-Man famed actor Tom Holland took to Instagram recently to let his millions of followers know that he is taking a break from social media in order to focus and support his mental health. He posted a video recording of him talking about the matter. He says, "I find Instagram and Twitter to be overstimulating, to be overwhelming. I get caught up and I spiral when I read things about me online, and ultimately it’s very detrimental to my mental state. So I decided to take a step back and delete the app."

The Spider-Man: No Way Home actor also talks about the initiative called Stem4 that his charity, The Brothers Trust, is supporting. Stem4 is a mental health charity that offers free apps to help support teenagers. He goes on to say, "There is an awful stigma against mental health, and I know that asking for help and seeking help isn't something that we should be ashamed of, but it is something that is much easier said than done. Hopefully, these apps can be your first step towards being happier and healthier".

Posting the video on his official Instagram handle, he wrote, "Hello and goodbye... I have been taking a break from social media for my mental health, but felt compelled to come on here to talk about @stem4org . Stem4 is one of the many charities @thebrotherstrust is extremely proud to support - and I’d like to take a moment to shine a light on their fantastic work. Please take the time to watch my video, and should you feel inclined to share it with anyone who it may resonate with - it would be greatly appreciated. There is a link in my bio to The Brothers Trust Shop, where you can buy a t-shirt, and help us continue to help these amazing charities thrive. Love to you all, and let’s get talking about mental health ❤️". Check it out:
