Amanda Bynes clears up rumours surrounding her mental health

Amanda Bynes made the decision to stay away from the media, after she was hospitalized last July.

But now it seems Amanda wants to clear up some rumours surrounding why exactly, the former actress had to seek psychiatric treatment.

Bynes’ solicitor, Tamar Arminak spoke on Amanda’s behalf: “There has been much speculation about Amanda’s medical condition. She has remained silent because she believed it was best to keep her mental health diagnosis private.”

The 28-year-old wishes to keep the treatment surrounding her mental health private, but did ask Tamar to clear up one rumour.

“For the record, Amanda does not have schizophrenia, nor has she ever been diagnosed with it.”

Amanda’s solicitor went onto to say that the former child star never abused alcohol or drugs and has been “marijuana free for nine months”.

Bynes is currently studying at the Fashion Institute of Design And Merchandising and returned to Twitter recently to post some holiday snaps of her and her family in Mexico.

Tamara said that Amanda is “doing extremely well” and another source revealed that the star still “continues to undergo outpatient therapy several times a week”.

We are glad to hear that Amanda is doing so well and wish her the best.
