Amanda Bynes has returned to the public after spending weeks in an inpatient mental health treatment facility.
According to a video obtained, the ‘Easy A’ star was seen out on her own in Orange County, California, over the weekend. She was seen leaving a store and waiting on the sidewalk with a shopping bag.
Amanda is apparently in the rehab center’s “minimal supervision group,” which permits her to leave the institution during specific hours.
According to a source, Amanda intends to remain at the center for the “foreseeable future as she continues to work on herself and her mental health.”
In early July, the ‘All That’ alum reportedly checked herself into an Orange County inpatient mental health treatment program.
She had previously had outpatient care in Los Angeles. Amanda was set to make her first formal public appearance after her conservatorship ended in March 2022 at the ‘All That’ cast reunion at ’90s Con in March 2023.
“I’m really excited to meet the fans and reunite with my castmates at ’90s Con,” she told PEOPLE. Amanda received her big break as a kid on the Nickelodeon sketch comedy series and quickly got her own spinoff series, The Amanda Show.
The 37-year-old canceled her appearance at ’90s Con at the last minute owing to an unidentified ailment. During the ‘All That’ panel, her former co-star Kel Mitchell begged the audience to “send a prayer” to Amanda to help her “feel better.”
Amanda was apparently placed on psychiatric hold just days after the ’90s Con because she was supposedly wandering around downtown Los Angeles naked.
According to an eyewitness, Amanda waved down a car and stated she was recovering from a psychiatric episode.
Following the terrifying incident, she was admitted to a mental health facility for three weeks before being released and transitioning to outpatient treatment.
