Last week, Shawn Mendes took to Twitter to tell fans that he "finds it hard to feel like I'm not failing," revealing that he "constantly feels like" he's "either flying or drowning."
Now, the "Wonder" artist has turned to Instagram to share another update on his mental health with his fans.
Sharing a photo of himself playing guitar, he admitted in the caption of the post that he has been "been going through it lately."
"Tryna be the best ain’t really doing it for me anymore if i’m honest," he wrote. "Turns out just being me feels a whole lot better."
The singer then urged any of his followers dealing with their own mental health struggles to seek help.
"I know there’s a lot of people out there struggling, i hope you get the support you need," he wrote. "Maybe some of you are the support others need right now..nothing beats a friend who really sees and cares about you."

One of Mendes' good friends, John Mayer, responded in the comments, "Love you dearly."
The singer shared a lengthier note last week in which he admitted to being "overwhelmed and overstimulated" but assured fans that he is "okay."
Mendes is currently preparing for his "Wonder" world tour, and will appear at the Juno Awards in his hometown of Toronto on May 15 to accept the International Achievement Award.
