Late last year, Joshua Bassett opened up to his fans on social media, announcing that he was experiencing mental health struggles. On Sunday, January 29, the High School Musical: The Musical: The Series actor took to his Instagram Story, assuring fans he is "better than I have ever been."

According to Billboard, Joshua proclaimed, "For those concerned about me, be sure of this: I'm better than I have ever been. The peace I feel is far beyond what I thought possible."

While reassuring fans that he is doing well, Joshua opened up about his spiritual journey and how finding God changed his life. "A few months ago, I ask God to 'send me a sign when I write the truth," Joshua wrote. "I type 'Jesus is the way,' nothing happened, then I added, 'Jesus is the *only* way,' and the light turned on in my living room. "I have also first hand encountered Jesus twice. The experience's [sic] were richer and more vivid than anything in my life. I look forward to speaking about it soon."

Joshua drew concern from fans after he posted a series of what many people considered to be cryptic tweets on Christmas Eve. "Most people i know, including myself, are struggling right now," he tweeted."Please be good to yourselves and others, reach out to support those you love, and dont be afraid to ask for help."

Fans continued to express their concern after he tweeted, "Jesus Christ is the only way. His death and resurrection are historically documented. Turn away from hate, seek forgiveness, and come home to Him."

Over the summer, Joshua announced that he had to postpone and cancel serve dates from his world tour due to "colliding production schedules" that were out of his control. Joshua shared the news in an Instagram post, promising to come back with “even bigger venues” in 2023.

“Hi loveliest people in the world! good news and bad news, ” he wrote. “bad news first, i’m devastated to say that i have to cancel and reschedule some of my shows this fall, due to colliding production schedules. trust me i’m as disappointed as you are, if not more. unfortunately my hands are tied. my sincerest apologies to all who are affected by this.”

“the GOOD news is, each canceled show will be rescheduled for even bigger venues in early 2023 so that even more of you can come!,” he continued.
