Amber Portwood tragically hit a new low on the Teen Mom OG season finale.
She broke down on air and admitted that she had been thinking about killing herself.
The candid cast member actually called on Catelynn to fly in and offer assistance, considering this fellow Teen Mom had been through something similar in the not-too-distant past.

A Candid Confession
On last week’s installment, Portwood opened up about her postpartum depression, which she said on air was made worse by the fact that fans were sending her nasty messages on social media. We learned here that those messages contributed to her thoughts about suicide.
The Thoughts Were Real
“There was a night that I was waiting for [Andrew] and James to go to bed so I could kill myself,” Amber confessed. “And for some odd reason, he could feel it and he was like, ‘I’m not going to bed.’”
Please Help Me
Desperate, Amber reached out to Catelynn, who viewers know has also dealt with postpartum depression and suicidal thoughts just this past year; Catelynn and daughter Nova therefore flew out to Indiana.
Can I Go On?
“I feel like I’m at my lowest right now. I have no will,” Amber told Catelynn when she arrived and sat down on a couch with her friend.
Catelynn told Amber to maybe try inpatient treatment like she did. However, because son James was still so young, Amber said she wasn’t prepared to do so. Later, Portwood told MTV camera crews she wouldn’t film because of the way she’d been portrayed on the series.
A Separation is Needed
"I think I should separate myself from the show,” Amber told Executive Producer Larry Musnik. “I just don’t feel like this is right for my life anymore, seeing that you guys want a certain kind of story that I just don’t want to give you anymore. I just feel like it’s very different from a reality show anymore."
