Teen Mom OG Breaking Point: This Is Why Catelynn Decided To Get Help

During tonight's episode, the young parent declared she was 'not okay'

Catelynn has always been candid about her struggles with anxiety and depression -- and during tonight's Teen Mom OG episode, the young parent tearfully told Tyler and her producer Jessica that she was "not okay" and bravely admitted that she needed to seek out mental help.

During the filming of this installment, the Michigan native was open about her decision on social media -- and posted updates during her treatment as well as when she left the Arizona facility. But looking back, what made Catelynn express her desire to take time for herself to address these lingering issues?

"I decided I needed to get help from talking with Tyler and realizing that I maybe needed something more intense for myself," Cate told MTV News, as seen in the clip above, while adding that getting away and focusing solely on herself were also other factors that she considered. "For some reason, I just had a light bulb moment where I was like, 'Maybe I need extra help.'"

How did Tyler and her family support her through this decision? Hear Cate open up in the video, and be sure to keep watching TMOG on Mondays at 9/8c.
