Amanda Bynes is said to be in a new mental health facility at her own request.
According to sources The Nickelodeon alum checked herself into the “intensive inpatient mental health treatment center” roughly a week after being discharged from the institution where she had been put on a psychiatric hold in late June.
After leaving the mental facility, Bynes, who has bipolar disorder and a history of substance abuse, reportedly attended an outpatient program that allowed the former actress to undergo treatment while living at home.
According to insiders, the “She’s the Man” actress thought she needed more support than the outpatient program could provide, so she chose a more “therapeutic” environment.
Bynes was referred to an inpatient facility in Orange County, California, by her former treatment center.
The new facility will provide the 37-year-old “Hairspray” star with a medical team, therapists, and other patients with whom she may socialize throughout her stay.
Bynes was arrested in June after police received a complaint about a woman who was in distress.
She was then placed on psychiatric hold for an evaluation of her mental health.
Bynes was evaluated by a professional medical unit for the second time this year.
In March, the former child star was imprisoned after being seen naked on the streets of Los Angeles.
According to reports, Bynes called the cops on herself and was brought to a local police station. After arrival, a mental health professional determined Bynes required a 5150 hold.
At the time, her ex-fiancé, Paul Michael, told TSZ Newz that Bynes was “off her meds,” which caused her erratic conduct.
The couple called it quits in July 2022, months after Bynes accused Michael of seeing “mom-and-son porn” and using crack cocaine.
She later confirmed that she saw her ex watching “MILF” porn, but insisted that despite his clean drug test, Michael had relapsed.
Bynes enrolled in cosmetology school in October 2022, intending to become a manicurist.
It’s unknown whether she intends to pursue her career aspirations after her treatment.
