After the Teen Mom OG star tweeted Friday that she “thought of every way to kill myself” and announced she would seek treatment, her husband shared an update on Instagram.
“We just dropped her off,” he wrote along with a silly selfie of the couple on Saturday. “We haven’t held each other & just cried like that for a long time. Even after 12 years, I continue to be AMAZED by her strength, vulnerability, & courage to get help.”
He added, “‘As long as I am alive, you will never be alone’ – It is my call to arms & I will fight this war with her right by her side, we will not surrender to this…I will go to battle EVERY TIME for her!”
Not long after she tweeted about seeking treatment, the 25-year-old mom shared a photo of the tattoo on her forearm that reads in cursive text, “My story isn’t over yet;” She also posted a sweet photo of her daughter Nova’s favorite toy, writing that she would be taking it with her to treatment.
Tyler immediately praised his wife for her bravery and openly expressed his support after she revealed the news.
“Incredibly proud of my wife…when she thought she had no choices left, she reached out & decided to LIVE today! My life would be desolate without her in it. You are beautiful, strong, worthy, & loved @CatelynnLowell #KeepTalkingMH,” he tweeted.

The pair has been through their fair share of difficult times throughout their more than decade-long relationship, including the bittersweet choice to give up their firstborn, Carly, for adoption — but they have been happily married since August 2015 and are parents to a second daughter, Novalee Reign, 2.
“I’m seeking help for myself and my family,” she told MTV News, stressing that her treatment will focus on mental health issues and not drug use. “Thank you to all of my supporters. My family and I would appreciate some privacy at this time.”
Speaking with PEOPLE in April, Catelynn opened up about her battle with mental health.
“I’m doing very well. Two years out, you know, since birth, so I’m doing — I actually feel really good, I do. I had a panic attack this morning, but I worked through it. It’s just knowing the things that you have to do to work through it. But yeah, I’m doing way better,” she shared.
The seventh season of Teen Mom OG premieres Nov. 27 at 9 p.m. ET.
