TEEN Mom Amber Portwood has revealed she’s been accepted into Purdue University to study psychology after her own mental health struggles. 

The 30-year-old took to Instagram to share the happy news with her 1.7 million followers that she would be attending the Indianna school online. 

Amber looked radiant in the post wearing a mustard yellow top, glasses and a necklace to make her announcement. 

With the sun behind her giving the photo some arty light, the mom-of-two wrote underneath: “I just got accepted in college at Purdue University - Bachelor of Science in Psychology in Applied Behavior Analysis”

Understandably her fans were thrilled for her and rushed to offer congratulations to the reality star. 

One wrote: “Congratulations Amber! Sooo proud of you!”

“Get it girl!!!,” added another.

While a third posted: “Congratulations Amber. You have come so far and I’m sending love from Michigan.”

The Teen Mom icon has been struggled over the years with her mental health that attributed to her parenting and co-parenting issues.

She has officially diagnosed with bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder.

Amber has two children – Leah, 12, with ex-fiance Gary Shirley and James, 3, with former boyfriend Andrew Glennon.

In July 2019 Andrew was granted primary physical custody of little James in wake of Amber's arrest for domestic violence.

She has three unsupervised visits a week with the toddler and is “hurt” she has “lost so much time” with the tot.

The Sun previously reported that Amber has a temporary restraining order against Andrew to prevent him from interfering with their court-ordered custody agreement. 

Over the years the reality star has been arrested several times for incidents concerning domestic violence and drug possession.

In 2010 Amber was arrested and charged with several domestic abuse felonies against her now ex-fiancé Gary.

Many of the fights were captured on video for Teen Mom.

Two years later Amber was sentenced to five years in prison for prescription drug possession and the probation violation.

The Teen Mom star was released from jail early in 2013 for good behavior and according to the jail's spokesperson, she participated in a substance abuse program while in prison.

Amber recently revealed her daughter Leah, 12, has begun to ask questions about their traumatic past together, including the Teen Mom's addiction and prison sentence.
