LOS ANGELES, July 30 (UPI) -- Sources close to Casey Anthony told TMZ.com she is seeking mental health treatment and won't be doing any interviews on U.S. television in the near future.

Anthony has been in hiding since her release from a Florida jail after her acquittal on charges she murdered her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, in 2008 to free herself from the burdens of being a single mother.

It was expected Anthony would charge a hefty fee for an interview to finance her new life; however, TMZ said Saturday it would be at least a couple of months before she faced the cameras.

The celebrity Web site said its source told them Anthony had serious issues to tackle stemming from both her incarceration and the trauma of losing her daughter. "It messed with her head," the source said.

TMZ said Anthony's attorney, Jose Baez, was fielding media offers on her behalf, but Anthony would make the final decisions on an interview.
