Amanda Bynes: Covered in Sheet, Moving Psychiatric Facilities

by at . Comments

Still under an involuntary 5150 hold, Amanda Bynes is moving to a new psychiatric facility, according to reports. The actress made the move on Thursday.

Amanda has been hospitalized since July 22. Yesterday, she stepped out for the first time since then, en route from Ventura County to UCLA Medical Center.

Covering her body and face in a white sheet, she appeared to be wearing a bright blue wig on her head and only socks on her feet while walking to a black SUV.

Bynes' mom Lynn, who was granted temporary conservatorship over her daughter on August 9, wanted her at UCLA to receive the best psychiatric care.

A judge granted doctors' request to extend her psychiatric hold for at least 30 more days, and her new digs are renowned for superb mental health care.

A good thing, too. For an extension that long to be granted, it requires a judge to deem the patient "gravely disabled as a result of a mental disorder."

Doctors believe that she is suffering from schizophrenia but are still working on diagnosing and finding the best course of treatment for the star, 27.

Amanda Bynes was initially placed under psychiatric care after allegedly starting a fire in a stranger's driveway in her hometown of Thousand Oaks, Calif.
