Amanda Bynes attended her graduation ceremony on June 24 at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, but she is still continuing to seek treatment for her mental health. According to reports, the Sydney White actress simply got a day pass so that she could celebrate with her peers.
Amanda’s lawyer Tamar Arminak told Access Hollywood in April that although the Nickelodeon alum isn’t considering acting jobs, “She absolutely is still studying and she’s so amazed with FIDM because, as a school, they’ve been so supportive of her this entire time.”
Tamar added, “She can’t wait to get back to the FIDM campus and be creative again.”
Amanda admitted herself into rehab in January due to the stress of reentering the Hollywood spotlight.
Amanda, 33, returned to campus on graduation day. “She was able to get an outing pass for a few hours for the special occasion, so she could walk with the other students. But she left a little early and was back at the facility at the end of the graduation,” a source told People.
The star became overwhelmed by the attention she received following a candid interview for Paper Magazine in November 2018. During the interview, she discussed her mental health, past drug abuse, and her desire to get back into acting.
There is no update on when Amanda will officially be discharged from the inpatient program.
