Barker shared last week in an Instagram video she posted that she was in the hospital after "struggling" with her mental health.
On Monday, Barker concluded her update by encouraging her followers to slow things down and seek support in facing their own challenges.
"If you are struggling, please do yourself a favor. Take a break, stop being so hard on yourself," she said. "People used to always tell me not to be so hard on myself, and I never really, really knew what that meant."
The actress also shared some advice she received from her "Bridgerton" costar, Claudia Jessie, who plays Eloise Bridgerton.
"She told me to flip the coin: It might be dull on one side, but just flip the coin and you'll find it's shiny on the other. It's training your mind to find the funny, to find the light, to find the positive," Barker shared.
"It's a really hard thing to do, but if you can get into the practice of doing that, you've got it," she continued. "Anybody that's in a dark place right now, I just want you to know I see you I feel you. Find the funny and flip that coin."
