Amanda Bynes

I DO NOT NEED

A CONSERVATORSHIP

9/18/2012 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Amanda Bynes
insists ... she's not having a Britney Spears-type meltdown -- telling friends she does NOT need a conservatorship because she's perfectly capable of making her own life choices.

Amanda is adamant ... she has no substance abuse problems and she dismisses the pending criminal hit-and-run charges and the DUI cases -- claiming the charges are all bogus.

Amanda says her family has NEVER brought up even the possibility of a conservatorship. This is consistent with a contact TMZ had with a rep for Amanda's family several months back ... the rep insisted the family felt Amanda had NO mental problems. 

We do know several friends and relatives of Amanda's family have tried convincing them Amanda needs professional help, but as of early summer the pleas fell on deaf ears.

As we first reported -- Amanda's neighbors and fellow gymgoers have become increasingly alarmed  ... claiming Amanda has shown worrisome signs of mental distress, including speaking to inanimate objects.

As for reports Amanda's entering rehab in the next couple days – the actress says no way ... there's no reason to check into a treatment facility.

The only people that say they aren't crazy are those that are. Sane people have a cognitive place in the brain that always questions their sanity. The real crazy people are her parents and family who are refusing to face the fact she needs major help.

Saying you have no substance abuse issues is a bullchit bald-faced lie, because we have a pic of you smoking a bong while you were driving. I don't think she has mental health issues. I think she has a crystal meth addiction.

What she needs is a well-placed parental kick in the ass.

sheeesh TMZ . . leave the girl alone. You are even doing the old National Enquirer trick of posting a horrible photo of her to make it look like she is nuts. You are stalking her for chrissake! Quoting "friends" . . .that is BS! I don't even know who she is, but it's clear you are going after her for some reason.

Parents can be in deep denial when their children have mental health issues - and it doesn't help if they are financially dependent on that child, as many parents of child-stars seem to be. I'm sure Britney didn't think she needed help, either...

Her family are obviously the problem if they don't see their daughter is going downhill fast and is going to crash and burn. This is so sad and makes me ill,I'm dealing with a similar situation where family is in complete denial over some serious problems which has pretty much destroyed them. She needs help now before it's to late!
