Tom Holland Says He’s Taking Break From Social Media Due to Mental Health Impact

Tom Holland told fans over the weekend he has taken a break from social media due to its impact on his mental health.

In a three-minute video shared on Sunday, Holland detailed his decision to step away from Instagram and Twitter before turning his followers’ attention to a mental health education program sponsored by his family charity The Brothers Trust.

“I have taken a break from social media for my mental health because I find Instagram and Twitter to be overstimulating, to be overwhelming,” Holland said in the video. “I get caught up and 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.”

To make good use of this “brief return” to IG, Holland added, he wanted to get more eyes on the U.K.-based teen mental health organization stem4. Per Holland, stem4 is “a wonderfully innovative education program” with a roster of “pioneering apps” serving to offer much-needed assistance to young people.

Holland is far from the first public figure to speak out about the potential mental health ramifications of pervasive social media use. In April, Selena Gomez told Good Morning America her life was changed “completely” by giving up social media, as well as the internet at large, for more than four years.

“I am happier, I am more present, I connect more with people,” she said at the time.

Other creatives who have made similar comments about the positive results they’ve gotten from stepping away from social media include Lorde, Pete Davidson, and Kid Cudi.
