Teen Mom OG Star Catelynn Lowell Updates Fans A Month After Entering Mental Health Facility
"I'm doing great!"
After opening up about her struggle with post-natal depression, Catelynn Lowell decided to check herself into a facility for mental health problems in Arizona last month.
On Tuesday, she tweeted a message to her 1.2 million followers, letting them all know how she was doing, and calling her time away the “best decision [she’s] ever made”.
This is the first time fans have heard from Catelynn since she told MTV News that she was “seeking help for myself and my family,” and went on to say, “Thank you to all of my supporters. My family and I would appreciate some privacy at this time.”
The Teen Mom OG star married long-term partner Tyler last summer, and he’s since opened up about his own battle with depression. He later said he regrets his decision to leave his depression and suicide attempt out of his and Catelynn’s memoir, 'Conquering Chaos', and intends to be more vocal from now on.
Huge respect to Catelynn for taking the time and space she needs to help herself – it’s never easy to speak up when you’re struggling, especially when you’re in the public eye, so massive kudos for that.
Catelynn – we’re sending you all our love!
