“16 and Pregnant” Star Jordan Cashmyer Recently Hospitalized After Suicide Attempt

jordan cashmyerA 16 and Pregnant star is speaking out about her recent stay at an institution.

Jordan Cashmyer, who starred on the most-recent season of the MTV reality show, was hospitalized last week for mental issues.

While The Ashley knew about this last week, she did not write about it out of respect for Jordan. However, Jordan decided to address what happened via social media today, so The Ashley feels that she can reveal what she knows.

According to The Ashley’s sources, Jordan (who raised eyebrows a few months back when she chose to work at a Baltimore strip club) got in a fight at work. Following that episode, she was placed into a hospital to get help for various issues. Her daughter, Genevieve, has been cared for by Jordan’s parents, as well as the baby’s father, Derek.

Jordan has been released from the hospital and on Tuesday shared more about what happened.

“I am happy to tell you that I am home from the hospital,” Jordan wrote. “I have been struggling with a lot of different things, emotionally, since I had Genevieve. I was diagnosed with post-partum depression and was on medication for a little while for it but I never followed up with my appointments. After that things started to get out of control.  My mood wouldn’t stay stable for very long, I was extremely impulsive, couldn’t focus…my anxiety got worse, as did my depression and OCD. It got to the point where I didn’t know what to do or how to handle it because I had lost everything that was important to me.”

Jordan then revealed that she has been suicidal.

“I felt that there wasn’t much of a reason to live anymore,” she wrote. “After trying to overdose, I was taken to a hospital and have been in there since then. They felt that I had made enough progress to go home today. I am now on medication and feeling great…Things are really looking up and I am set on having the best possible future for my daughter and I.”

According to one of The Ashley’s sources, Jordan’s ’16 and Pregnant’ producers have been trying to reach her for a while but have been unable to do so. It is likely in regard to the Season 5 “Where Are They Now?” special, which is currently being filmed.

  1. I am so glad she was not successful in ending her life. I am so glad that she got the help that she needed. She was one of my favorites on 16 and pregnant.

    1. Yes she and her boyfriend lived in there car for a while and then stayed with a family friend until she was being kicked out

  2. Bless your heart I understand what you went through. I had terrible post partum after my son was born in 2009′ and the verbal abuse I recieved from certain people in my life didnt help. Im glad to see your doing much better. Cant wait to watch the update special!

  3. It’s good that she’s finally getting help so she can be around to watch her baby girl grow up.. I also have to give props to the strip club she worked at by letting her go after finding out she’s using drugs. Strip clubs aren’t usually known for being stand up places but it’s nice to see that there were consequences for bad behavior.

  4. God bless her and her family. Ppd is very difficult so lets be positive and not be judge mental towards her.
