"Terminator 3" star Nick Stahl tells TMZ ... he's glad he was placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold earlier this month after being taken to an L.A. hospital because he needed the help.

The 33-year-old actor was hanging out in L.A. when he explained why he needed to be hospitalized on June 17. 

When asked how he felt about being placed on an involuntary hold -- Stahl replied, "It was helpful."

Stahl -- who's struggled with substance abuse in the past -- tells us he's picked up several hobbies to keep himself on the straight and narrow ... and wants to focus on keeping his mind strong as well as his body.

Do hope Nick Stahl is ok. Wish he would get some movie part to take his mind off things. Have always enjoyed his acting - a real talent. Very under-rated star.
Good luck to him and wishing him all the best

Fool. Be grateful you aren't lifting weights in Folsom or layed out in a hole because your ex got tired of your lame ass and let Mr Smith and Mr Wesson do the talking.

Why does the other guy insist on talking? You're not famous, no one cares what you have to say, dude. Is he also a methhead? Kinda has the face.
