Amanda Bynes will be undergoing more permanent psychiatric treatment as a result of a judge’s decision Friday, according to a TMZ report.
And her stay at a mental health facility could last up to a year.
A California judge made the ruling Aug. 30 based on her doctors’ requests for a long-term evaluation, control of which was then given to her mother, Lynn Bynes, who is acting as the actress’s temporary conservator.
The Easy A star was admitted to a facility in late July when authorities placed her on an involuntary psychiatric hold after she set a small fire with a gas can in the driveway of a Thousand Oaks, Calif. home.
Per the TMZ report, the chances of Amanda being held at a hospital for a year are unlikely. Rather, it could be for up to 60 days at which point she would then be moved to her parents home.
