Amanda Bynes: 'I'm Bi-Polar And Manic Depressive'
Star takes to Twitter to open up on her recent mental health issues...
It's been clear for some time that all has not been well with Amanda Bynes - but up until now most of the info about her health has come from US gossip websites.
However the troubled former child star has now taken to Twitter herself to set the record straight - and she's been surprisingly candid.
I was diagnosed bi - polar and manic depressive so I'm on medication and I'm seeing my psychologist and pyshchiatrist weekly so I'm fine :D

The 28-year-old actress wrote: "I need to get an apartment and my parents won't give me access to any of my funds.
"I was diagnosed bi - polar and manic depressive so I'm on medication and I'm seeing my psychologist and pyshchiatrist weekly so I'm fine :D
"I'm not living with my parents. I'm not legally obligated to."
She then added that as far as she is concerned she's now playing by the rules.
"My lawyer said if I comply with the courts and take my meds and see my psychologist and psychiatrist weekly then I will get unconserved."
Bynes was recently placed under forced psychiatric hold after wayward behaviour following the end of a conservatorship by her parents.
She previously underwent a lengthy period of treatment following a high-profile meltdown last year.
