Amanda Bynes Is Released from a Los Angeles Mental Hospital
April 11, 2023
LOS ANGELES – Actress Amanda Bynes has been released from a Southern California mental hospital after receiving more than three weeks of treatment.
The “She’s the Man” star was placed on a 5150 hold after she was reported to have been found wandering around downtown Los Angeles naked and alone when she came out of a psychotic episode. The hold, according to TMZ, was extended so that Bynes could focus on her mental health in the hospital.
Sources close to Bynes, said they let the former Nickelodeon star go after both she and the medical staff had determined that she was ready to resume her day-to-day life. The 37-year-old will undergo outpatient treatment when she resumes normal activities. But she will live in her own home and maintain much of the independence she had before or after nine years in a conservatorship.
In March of last year, Bynes was released from a conservatorship with her parents’ support. This is what pop star Britney Spears had to endure with her father, and the world has since seen how it affected her.Despite her recent psychiatric episode, Bynes’ parents have said they are not considering another conservatorship and instead called the situation an “anomaly.”
