Family support is just what the doctor ordered! On Tuesday, Feb. 11, a judge praised Amanda Bynes' mother, Lynn Bynes, for fulfilling her duties as conservator of her daughter, and helping Amanda make progress in her recovery.
TMZ reports that Bynes' parents, Lynn and Rick Bynes, appeared in an Oxnard, Calif. court Tuesday for a meeting on the conservatorship, which Lynn was temporarily granted back in August. "Good job, Mrs. Bynes," the judge said. "Well done."
Amanda, 27, embarked upon several months of treatment for mental illness back in September, and returned home to her parents before the holidays.
Since then, the former Nickelodeon star has been spotted looking healthy and happy while going for walks in her parents' neighborhood. She has also been taking classes at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising.
After she completed inpatient treatment, Amanda's lawyer, Tamar Arminak, told Us Weekly, "She's now looking at various colleges with the intention of majoring in fashion design. She's mentioned before she's interested in creating a clothing line."
"Despite the fact Amanda is no longer in a facility, her outpatient treatment is continuing," Arminak added. "She's very happy to reestablish the loving relationship with her family that she once shared."
