Amanda Bynes was known for being a young actress on a couple shows, “All That” and “The Amanda Show” during pretty much the late 90’s and early 2000’s… I remember watching several shows with her in them because at the time she was a huge star for the younger kids to watch.
Just recently however, she has been in a mental hospital (involuntarily) after setting a fire on someones driveway in Thousand Oaks.
A judge has granted her mother temporary conservatorship to make decisions in regards to Amanda’s care when released by the mental facility, and to be in control of her finances.
Apparently, Amanda has grown increasingly paranoid and expressed fear that she was being watched by fire alarms and her car radio.
It is looking like schizophrenia but a diagnosis has not been released as of yet.
** I was talking to my BF about this case and how many mental disorders show themselves in your mid to late 20’s. He mentioned that our brains are not fully developed until about our mid twenties… I can’t help but wonder if this is the cause.
Mental health awareness is so important. Proper diagnosis and treatment is important. Lets raise our voices.
