Ezra Miller has had a not-so-great year with a number of high-profile incidents, run-ins with the law, disturbing allegations, and even an arrest. Now it looks like the actor is going to receive help on the mental health side of things with a recent announcement that they will enter treatment to deal with issues that have cropped up in the short and long term. According to Deadline, Ezra Miller is seeking mental health treatment and has described this run as a “time of intense crisis”. Miller also included a statement with this announcement that lent a bit of clarity to the move to seek mental health treatment. They said, in part, “I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior. I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life.” 

It wasn’t detailed what kind of mental health treatment Ezra Miller would be seeking but it appears a meaningful step for the actor who’s had a number of incidents and claims against them over the better part of this year. And apparently, according to Deadline, this was a move that’s been mentioned by various folks in Miller’s circle including family, friends, and industry representatives seeking to figure out exactly what is going on here and why Miller’s behavior seems to have become increasingly erratic.

This move by Ezra Miller to seek mental health treatment comes somewhat on the heels of the Vermont State Police charging him with a count of burglary and a court date for the alleged incident being scheduled this fall. It’s been alleged that Ezra Miller entered a Vermont home and took bottles of alcohol from the premises. This was just another in a long line of incidents that have plagued the actor this year. They were involved in multiple incidents in Hawaii including an altercation at a bar and the supposed threats toward a couple they were living with on the island. There was also word that Ezra Miller might be housing a young woman and her children in an unsafe environment in Vermont. And, of course, there was a video from Iceland of Miller apparently trying to choke a woman. These are just some of the allegations and incidents involving Miller. 

The request to seek mental health treatment had also been pushed by Warner Bros. who is in business with Ezra Miller right now seeing as how The Flash is due out in theaters next summer. The movie is set to be a massive blockbuster for DC and the movie apparently will take us through that studio’s version of the Multiverse with an appearance from Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne/ Batman and the introduction of Sasha Calle as Supergirl. Concerns over Ezra Miller’s behavior and mental state had called into question what exactly WB would do with the movie. It looks like it is moving forward and this move by Ezra Miller to seek treatment could take some of the pressure off the studio in the short term.
