Amanda Bynes Is Seeking Treatment for Mental Health Issues

Amanda Bynes is giving herself time to focus on her mental health.

The star recently returned to Instagram after a two-month hiatus, and in that time, she revealed on Valentine’s Day that she was engaged to Paul Michael. However, they broke up three weeks later.

Now, Amanda’s lawyer David Esquibias is asking for privacy now that she “is seeking treatment for ongoing mental health issues.”

“Any reports that Amanda is suffering from drug or alcohol addiction issues are completely false,” he said in a statement. “We ask for privacy during this time, and for any speculation about her personal life from the public and the media to cease so Amanda can focus on getting better.”

Hey, any person who is taking a step to focus on their mental health is a smart cookie.

Bravo, Amanda.
