Former child star Amanda Bynes was reportedly released from the hospital in Southern California on Monday, following some three weeks of treatment.

Bynes was placed on a psychiatric hold last month after the actress was found roaming the streets of Los Angeles naked, The Daily Wire reported. She was initially placed on a 72-hour hold, but that was extended until Monday.

“No one really recognized her or noticed her. She was walking tensely and by herself. A woman started walking with her and tried to help her. Amanda asked the woman to hold her,” an eyewitness told ET of the incident. “Amanda seemed to be in a loving, wholesome mood, [though she] seemed as though she was out of it.”

Bynes apparently then “asked to be dropped off at her friend’s place in Beverly Hills,” the witness said. “When the woman went to drop her off, Amanda’s friend did not answer.”

The actress “did not want to go home and noted that her boyfriend kicked her out,” the source added. “Amanda then asked to be dropped back off on Hollywood Boulevard, and the woman obliged.”

A judge last year terminated the embattled actress’ conservatorship following a petition from Bynes to dissolve the arrangement. A personal conservatorship for Bynes lasted from 2013 to March 2022, and a conservatorship for the actress’ estate was terminated in 2017.

Rick Bynes, the actress’s father, served as trustee, while Bynes’ mother, Lynn Organ, controlled her daughter’s medical and personal matters.

The judge who ended Bynes’ personal conservatorship found that the arrangement was “no longer required.”

“Lynn is so proud of Amanda and the progress she has made and looks forward to having a mother-daughter relationship with Amanda outside of the conservatorship,” a representative for Lynn, Tamar Arminak, told Fox News Digital.

After the conservatorship ended, Bynes’ attorney, David Esquibias, told Fox News Digital, “Amanda is excited and looking forward to living independently.” He also told People magazine Bynes “believes her condition is improved and protection of the court is no longer necessary.”

The “She’s the Man” actress was scheduled to appear at 90s Con in Connecticut last month with other popular stars from that era, including cast members of “Beverly Hills 90210,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Charmed,” “The Wonder Years,” and others. Bynes, though, canceled her appearance on the “All That” panel due to an unspecified illness.

The actress is headed back to her home, where she will partake in an outpatient treatment plan, according to TMZ.
