“Roseanne” actress Emma Kenney says she’s taking a break from social media and Los Angeles, The Associated Press reports.

Her tweet comes after Kenney told In Touch she’s going to seek “treatment for my battles.” She didn’t specify what type of treatment, but said she’s “going to get help and make better choices.”

Kenney, 18, plays granddaughter Harris Conner-Healy on ABC’s revival of “Roseanne.” She has also played Debbie Gallagher on Showtime’s “Shameless.”

Kenney says she was running with a “really fast crowd” and doing things that weren’t legal because she’s not 21. Kenney says she felt anxious and depressed. She called it a slippery slope that she didn’t want to go down.

She says that while it didn’t affect her work, her private life suffered.
