Sources told People Bieber's message was a "big step" amid his reported struggle with depression.
"The whole point of counseling and therapy is to get to the bottom of why you feel the way you feel," an insider said. "This was Justin being authentic and telling people his truth. So that Instagram post was an important part of his recovery."
