Britney Spears has checked herself into a mental health facility in order to help her cope with her father’s ongoing health problems.

According to TMZ, Jamie Spears has had two major surgeries to fix problems with his intestines and colon, but complications from those surgeries arose and don’t seem to be abating. Britney has since put her Vegas residency on hold, and last week, checked into the facility. She’s expected to stay there for 30 days.


“We all need to take a little ‘me time,’” she wrote on Instagram, along with a picture that read, “Fall in love with taking care of yourself, mind, body, spirit.”

As TMZ points out, Britney has been under a conservatorship managed by her father since 2008, an arrangement that seems to have worked out well for her.


And speaking of mental health, here’s Justin Bieber with a selfie from this therapist’s office.
