One of Mackenzie’s followers told her, “Yo girl…please don’t say things like that. You have 3 kids that need their mom. You are feeling like this because you still need your mom at your age. Think about how you would’ve been to lose your mom at their tender ages, and the internet is forever.”
Another concerned fan of Mackenzie’s seemed to take her tweet to mean that she was contemplating harming herself. They wrote, “Mac please hold on until you can feel better. … Your dad has also been thru so much. Dont hurt him more. People take the easy way out and leave the pain for the ones left behind.”
“Oh hun please reach out to someone,” urged another of Mackenzie’s followers. “Seeking therapy may be beneficial. And remember prayer helps. Your babies need you!”
After one of Mackenzie’s followers tagged Dr. Drew Pinsky and asked him to reach out to her and see if she needed help, the Teen Mom OG star reassured her fans.

“I will be getting Help soon thank you for your love and support,” Mackenzie responded.
Mackenzie is transparent with her fans about her mental health. She recently took to Twitter to hint that she needed medication to help her through another tough time and was open about her struggles.
“It is important to recognize when your mental health is at a level where you can no longer handle it on your own. There is nothing wrong with that,” Mackenzie tweeted last month. “Medication helped me through a scary year of grief. I got off when I felt it was time. And now I’ve realized I’m back to square one.”
