Emma Keney is planning to focus on herself and her wellbeing for now. The Roseanne star recently revealed that she would be checking herself in for treatment for her "battles" in an interview with In Touch. The 18-year-old actress, who plays Harris Conner-Healy on the ABC revival, says that she's “going to be seeking treatment for my battles.”


“I’m going to work through it,” she said. “I’m going to get help and make better choices.”

The child-star also opened up about the troubles she faced for getting into showbiz from a really tender age, and the drawbacks of growing up famous. “I was running with a really fast crowd. I was being naïve and very immature, and I was doing things I should not be doing because it was illegal and I’m not 21,” Emma shared. 

“It wasn’t healthy, and it was making me feel even worse– anxious and depressed. It was just a slippery slope that I did not want to down. And I knew that I needed to stop it,” Emma continued.

The actress then went on to explain how she's come to the conclusion of getting herself professional help and being the best version possible of herself.

“I want to be the healthiest, best Emma that I can be, and I know that by going to treatment that’s what’s going to happen, and I’m going to continue on that positive road. I just want to send a message to my fans saying that it’s OK to admit that you need help, and it doesn’t make you weak. I’m going to come out on the other side, the True Emma that I’ve always been.”


Emma hinted at her plans to make a change with a tweet on Monday.
