After playing a sympathetic prank, Amanda Bynes was admitted to a psychiatric facility. The actress showed up absolutely naked on the streets of Los Angeles.
The “She’s a Man” and “What a Girl Wants” performer has long struggled with mental health issues. Addiction is a problem for the actress. She was last weekend seen wandering around the street in her undressed state, taking leisurely strolls by herself.
Informing a passing vehicle that Amanda was suffering from a mental episode, Amanda then dialed 911. Officers from the police showed up to pick up the actress. Bynes was evaluated by medical professionals at the police station, and they then admitted her to a mental hospital.
This unique facility in California isolates patients for 72 hours—even against their will. If more time is needed, it can be extended. Specialists will thoroughly assess the person’s mental health throughout this period. According to the Daily Mail, Amanda did not put up any resistance to police enforcement or medical personnel. The actress’s health is now completely under the hands of specialists.
Long-standing mental health issues have plagued Amanda Bynes. The actor struggles with socializing and has been identified as having an anxiety disorder.
