Amanda Bynes’ psychiatric hospitalizations have been peppered with trips to rehab. In 2018 she announced (via Page Six) that she was celebrating her fourth sobriety anniversary. Unfortunately, she relapsed two months later. According to TMZ, Bynes was placed on a 5150 for the third time on March 19, 2023, after she was discovered in a distressed state wandering around the downtown Los Angeles area in the early hours of Sunday morning.

A source told TMZ, “Bynes waved a car down, telling the driver she was coming down from a psychotic episode.” She called 911 and was subsequently placed on a 72-hour 5150 involuntary hold. The enforced hospital stay can be extended past 72 hours if it’s deemed that Bynes is a danger to herself or others.

For the past few years, Bynes has seemed fairly healthy and happy. She was studying for a Bachelor’s degree at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising and looking forward to the future. However, she’s also denied suffering from mental health issues. “Truly, for me, [my behavior] was drug-induced, and whenever I got off of [drugs], I was always back to normal,” she told Paper magazine. “I know that my behavior was so strange that people were just trying to grasp at straws for what was wrong.”

If you or someone you know needs help with mental health, please contact the Crisis Text Line by texting HOME to 741741, call the National Alliance on Mental Illness helpline at 1-800-950-NAMI (6264), or visit the National Institute of Mental Health website.
