Catelynn Lowell's postpartum depression has been the main focus of her story on this season's Teen Mom OG, but she now has a new platform to discuss the severity of her mental illness. She and husband Tyler Baltierra will appear on Friday's episode of The Doctors to discuss her journey in battling her depression and anxiety.
Although her stay at rehab proved to aid her mental health, the Teen Mom star admitted to using marijuana and Zoloft to cope with her symptoms. On the hit medical show, she gave a positive update to Dr. Travis Stork, “I’m feeling really good and doing things to continue working on myself — therapy, seeing a psychiatrist.”

Tyler admitted her mental illness caused a strain on their marriage, which was also documented this season, "It affected it as far as our communication goes. For the first time, we didn’t know how to communicate because we never went through it before and we didn’t know anything about postpartum," he revealed. "I think I probably handled it wrong because I didn’t know. I was very naïve. I was maybe a little insensitive.”
