Watch: Jaden Hossler Shares His Mental Health Struggles

TikTok's Jaden Hossler is sharing an update with his fans.

The social media star, also known as jxdn, recently noted he's taking some time away from his channels to seek treatment for his mental health.

In a message posted to Instagram June 4, Hossler told his millions of followers that he wanted to "be open and vulnerable with you all" about what he's been going through. 

"Honestly, I really did not want to talk about this online, but I have realized that that is me holding onto my ego," he wrote. "Everyone wants to talk about their highlights (including myself), but real life is far more humbling."

The 22-year-old, who's spoken about his mental health journey in the past, then acknowledged that it hasn't been an easy time for him. 

"This past year has been by far the hardest time of my life," he continued. "I am not denying the highs that have come as well, but there have been countless and excruciating lows, and it's all finally catching up to me. I've had so many conversations with you about staying strong in a weak world, taking care of yourself and putting your mental health first. It's time that I take my own advice and do exactly that."

Stars Who Took Steps to Prioritize Mental Health

As a result, Hossler said he's stepping back to get the help he needs.

"I'm taking time away to seek treatment to finally and hopefully get my mental health to where it needs to be," he added. "I need a mental reset. I want to renew my mind. I feel as if I have hit a wall where it is starting to affect the simplest and most basic parts of my life. All I want in life is to create moments and music that heal and provide safety for people in a world that is so fake and so unsafe. But in order to do that I need to make sure that I'm in the right state both physically and mentally, and right now I am not."


The singer then noted that his new song "Elevated Heartbreak" will still be released June 8, calling the single a "form of therapy in itself."

"I hope you can find a connection to it," he wrote, "as I made it with this purpose."

And while Hossler noted the purpose of his post was to keep fans "updated and not confused" by his absence, he also expressed his hope that it would help anyone who is struggling.

"Most importantly I want to inspire people to get the help they truly deserve," he stated. "I have let fear keep me from helping myself. You don't have to wait until it's ‘too late' to get help. Because it never is. I am trusting my gut that this will put me in the best possible position to be who I want to be, feel how I want to feel, and go where I want to go."

At the end of his message, Hossler thanked his fans for their support.

"See you soon," he wrote. "Go inspire, go love, go be present and always move forward."

And Hossler received an outpouring of love from his followers. "So admirable," Love Is Blind's Danielle Ruhl wrote in the comments. Added beauty influencer Amanda Diaz, "Proud of you for putting yourself first."

Stassie Karanikolaou—who sparked romance rumors with Hossler earlier this year—also reacted with a heart emoji.
