Amanda Bynes’ parents Lynn and Rick are reportedly not planning to put her back in a conservatorship despite her purported mental health woes.
The 36-year-old was allegedly placed in a psychiatric hold over the weekend after she was found ‘roaming the streets naked and alone.’
However her family is said to have taken note of the fact that she realized she was unwell and sought treatment herself, TMZ reports.
She was allegedly placed in the 5150 hold after she took matters into her own hands to get help, beckoning a passing car and dialing 911, it was claimed.
Bynes was in a conservatorship held by her parents for almost nine years until she was released in March 2022, in a move approved by Lynn and Rick.

This weekend’s incident appears to be an outlier as Bynes was previously thought to be in decent mental shape, taking a cosmetology course while living on her own.
The troubled actress, who canceled a public appearance on Saturday, was seen walking near downtown Los Angeles early on Sunday morning without any clothes on.
She is said to have waved a car down, telling a driver she was ‘coming down from a psychotic episode’ before she called 911.
Bynes was taken to a police station where a mental health team placed her on a 5150 psychiatric hold.
A 5150 is a legal action from the CA Welfare and Institutions Code. It allows a qualified officer or clinician to confine someone against their will for 72 hours which can be extended.
During this time, the person will be fully assessed for their mental health status.
Bynes is currently hospitalized and will likely receive care for several days. She is not believed to have been hurt during the incident.
DailyMail.com has contacted Bynes’ representative for comment.

This comes after the actress pulled out of reuniting with the rest of the All That cast at ’90s Con on Saturday, citing an ‘unknown illness’, according to That’s 4 Entertainment.
At the last minute, the actress, who previously expressed her eagerness to reconnect with her former Nickelodeon castmates at the event, had to cancel.
Her attendance at the highly-anticipated reunion, alongside Kenan Thompson, Kel Mitchell, Danny Tamberelli and Lori Beth Denberg, would have marked her first public appearance since the end of her eight-year conservatorship in March 2022.
She has yet to publicly address the health concern that prevented her from going, but just two months ago, she told People that she was ‘really excited to reunite with’ her ‘cast mates and meet the fans’ 23 years after the original show ended.
The performer starred on the sketch comedy show from 1996 to 2000 alongside Mitchell, 44, Tamberelli, 40, and Denberg, 46.
All That was created by Brian Robbins and Mike Tollin and originally aired on Nickelodeon from April 16, 1994, to October 22, 2005, lasting ten seasons.
The series, which was billed as ‘SNL for kids’ boasted short comedy sketches and musical guests.
In 2019 a revival of the series with original cast member Kenan Thompson serving as executive producer and Mitchell rejoining the cast was confirmed, with the 11th season airing in June of that year.

The last episode of the series aired on December 17, 2020, after production was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
It launched Bynes into her noughties romcom era, before the embattled star stepped away from acting.
Bynes and beau Paul Michael broke off their engagement in July of 2022, but reportedly got back together in August. Now they are rumored to be living together again in Amanda’s L.A. home.
Though Bynes has reconciled with her ex-fiancé, their engagement is reportedly not back on.
Sources close to the star have told TMZ that the pair are only dating after calling off their engagement over the summer.
Rumors of their latest reunion first arose earlier in October of 2022 when the Nickelodeon star shared a mysterious image of herself holding hands with Paul Michael – who could be recognized by his distinctive tattoos – on her Instagram Story.
The cozy photo came nearly two months after news first broke that the pair had ended their two-year engagement.
The subtle hint of Amanda’s photo featured Paul’s tattooed grip holding on to her heavily manicured hand.
Neither appeared to be wearing any rings on their hands following news on July 8 that they had ended their engagement ‘sometime in 2021.’
‘They are still together as a couple,’ an insider stressed to ET at the time of their supposed split. ‘They are still in a committed relationship and take their relationship seriously.’
Bynes and Michael famously got engaged on Valentine’s Day 2020, mere months after staying at the same sober living facility.

On April 28, the Easy A alum called 911 on the healthcare worker during a dispute over him relapsing. She accused him of vandalizing his mother’s home, looking at MILF porn, and being off his meds.
Aside from Amanda’s busy love life, the star has also reportedly been developing a ‘fragrance line’ as she pursues another degree at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising after earning her associate’s degree there in 2019.
In March of 2022, Bynes was freed of her nine-year legal conservatorship controlled by her mother Lynn.
Amanda’s conservatorship began in 2013 when she was involuntarily committed to a Pasadena psychiatric treatment facility following a public meltdown involving a string of bizarre run-ins with the law dating back to 2012.
Bynes’ offenses were two hit-and-runs and a DUI in 2012, as well as a 2013 arrest for throwing a bong out of a window of the 36th floor of her Manhattan apartment.
