Stay strong, Cate!

Many of the Teen Mom cast members had extremely difficult pasts. Because they were famous at the age of 16, viewers are familiar with some of the difficulties they experienced while they were were still underage. For Catelynn Lowell, many elements of her upbringing were particularly traumatic, and they have taken a toll on her mental health.

In the last season of Teen Mom OG, Catelynn admitted to growing up in an abusive household and turning to drugs to cope with her trauma. She also underwent the difficult process of choosing adoption for her first daughter, Carly. After giving birth to her second daughter, Novalee, Catelynn fell into a postpartum depression and was open with fans about her mental health during her struggles.

Catelynn has made the decision to be open with her fans once again when it comes to her mental illness. Instead of hiding, Catelynn came forward with the heartbreaking news that she’s heading into treatment after thinking of “every possible way to commit suicide.”
