The MTV personality has been open about her mental health struggles over the years, including in segments on the series. In the sixth season of the show, the 25-year-old returned home after a month-long stay at an Arizona-based treatment center, revealing she was struggling with postpartum depression.
In an interview with MTV News, Lowell said she knew she needed to get help after talking to her husband.
"For some reason, I just had a light bulb moment where I was like, 'Maybe I need extra help,'" she said.
