Cape Town - Britney Spears’ mom, Lynne, is fully supporting her daughter after she checked into a mental health facility recently.

The mom of three took to Instagram to give advice to the Make Me singer.

"Keep going no matter how bad things are right now, no matter how stuck you feel," Lynne captioned her post.

"No matter how many days you’ve spent crying, no matter how many days you’ve spent wishing things were different, no matter how hopeless and depressed you feel – I promise you won't feel this way forever. Keep going."

Earlier this year, the American songstress announced she’d be taking a break from the limelight after her dad, Jamie, was hospitalised with serious health issues, E Online reports.

"I’m dedicating my focus and energy to care for my family," Britney wrote in a statement. "We have a very special relationship and I want to be with my family at this time just like they’ve always been there for me.

"It’s important to always put your family first . . . and that’s the decision I had to make.

"A couple of months ago my father was hospitalised and almost died. We’re all so grateful he came out of it alive, but he still has a long road ahead of him.

"I had to make the difficult decision to put my full focus and energy on my family at this time. I hope you all can understand."

An insider told People that the star checked into a health facility for an "all-encompassing wellness treatment" to cope with her dad’s deteriorating health.

"Britney just needed to focus on herself," the source said.

"Her dad being sick has taken a toll on her. He nearly died and actually had another surgery a few weeks ago.

"He’s not doing well. They’re so close and it’s been a lot. There’s nothing dramatic going on with her – she just realised she needs to make sure to take time to care for herself."
