Tom Holland says he is stepping away from social media to focus on his mental health.

The "Spider-Man: No Way Home" star, who has been absent from digital platforms in recent weeks, made a temporary return to Instagram on Sunday to announce that he had deleted Instagram and Twitter.

In the three-minute video, the 26-year-old actor said that social media apps had become "harmful" to his mental state and that he "doesn't feel good" when he reads things about himself online.

"I've taken a break from social media for my mental health because I think Instagram and Twitter are too stimulating, harmful," he told his 67.7 million followers.

"I feel bad when I read things about myself on the internet and it's ultimately very damaging to my mental state.

So, I decided to take a step back and delete the app," he said.

Holland, who is currently dating his "Spider-Man: Homecoming" co-star Zendaya, also used the comeback to let followers know about the importance of mental health.

"There is a terrible stigma against mental health and I know that asking for help is not something to be ashamed of," he added.

He ended by telling fans he was "leaving Instagram again", but thanked them for their "love and support".

"I love you all and I will talk to you soon."
