According to reports, Amanda Bynes, best known for her roles in the Nickelodeon sketch comedy series All That (1996-2000), has been given a 72-hour psychiatric stay. The action was conducted as a result of Amanda being discovered early on Sunday morning in downtown Los Angeles (March 19).
The 36-year-old celebrity was spotted walking without any clothing, according to an eyewitness. When a car approached, she waved it down and informed the driver that she was recovering from a psychotic episode. Amadan then dialled 911 on her own and was brought to a neighbouring police station, where a mental health team made the decision to place her on a 5150 psychiatric hold.
FWIW, a psychiatric hold permits a person facing a mental health crisis to be detained for 72 hours for “psychiatric hospitalisation because of a potential thre at of killing oneself or others or being badly incapacitated”.
Bynes was scheduled to make an appearance at the 90s Con in Hartford, California, prior to this episode. Nevertheless, That’s4Entertainment announced that Amanda withdrew from the competition just before it started because of an unspecified ailment.
Amanda’s Mental Health History…
For a long period, Amanda battled both substance misuse and mental illness. In 2010, the “What I Like About You” actress announced an indefinite break from performing as she dealt with a number of personal issues. Amanda was under a conservatorship from August 2013 until March 2022, in case you didn’t know.
She was accused of DUI in 2012, however the charges were eventually dropped, and she was given a three-year probation instead. She faced charges for marijuana possession and reckless endangerment the following year. After the cops entered the flat, it was claimed that she threw a bong out of the window.
Bynes continued to have her share of problems, from dealing with the legal consequences of lighting a small fire in a driveway to accusing her father of sexual and emotional abuse while under her conservatorship. She was given a bipolar illness diagnosis in 2014. She apologised to her parents in 2022 for the string of tweets she had sent about her father and that she had since become sober.
In February 2022, she requested the termination of her conservatorship, and in March 2022, the request was granted. Yet once more, the most recent incident shows that she needs assistance more than ever. She might have made her first public appearance following the termination of her conservatorship during the “All That” panel at the 90s convention in Connecticut.
