Amanda Bynes to Start 'Outpatient Care' After Being Released From Psychiatric Hold

The 'She's the Man' actress had been put on psychiatric hold for two weeks after she was detained by cops and taken into custody for a mental health evaluation.

AceShowbiz - Amanda Bynes has been released from psychiatric hold. However, it doesn't mean that the "Easy A" actress is totally free since she still needs to start "outpatient care."

According to TMZ, the 37-year-old left the mental health facility late Friday, June 30. By starting outpatient care, she will be checked by a medical professional daily and will also be "monitored to make sure she's taking her daily meds and continues to stay in a good headspace."

Earlier that month, TMZ reported that Amanda was detained by cops and taken into custody for a mental health evaluation. Sources later told the outlet the "She's the Man" star was deemed a danger to herself and those around her.

Amanda was previously placed on psychiatric hold in March after she was seen walking around naked in Los Angeles the month prior. An eyewitness told TMZ she flagged down a car and told the driver that she was coming down from a psychiatric episode before calling police.

At that time, sources told the publication that Amanda, who has also struggled with substance abuse, had likely been living "on the streets for days" before the incident. The former child star's ex-fiance Paul Michael also told Page Six she had probably been "off her meds."

Meanwhile, an eyewitness told Entertainment Tonight, "Amanda was wandering alone on Hollywood Blvd. at around 1 am. No one really recognized her or noticed her. She was walking tensely and by herself. A woman started walking with her and tried to help her." The individual added, "Amanda asked the woman to hold her. Amanda seemed to be in a loving, wholesome mood [but] seemed as though she was out of it."

Amanda was hospitalized for nearly three weeks before starting outpatient treatment and her eight-year conservatorship was terminated in March 2022 after the court determined the legal arrangement was "no longer required."
