Amanda Bynes

On the Move

8/16/2013 7:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0816_amanda_bynes_abilityfilms
Amanda Bynes has been transferred to the UCLA Medical Center for further treatment of her mental illness ... TMZ has learned.

Amanda was shielded by a blanket as she was taken Thursday from the psychiatric facility in Ventura County to UCLA.  We're told her mom -- who is now Amanda's temporary conservator -- wanted the actress admitted to UCLA because it has one of the best psych facilities in the nation.

Our sources say Amanda would have been transferred earlier but a bed wasn't available until Thursday.

As TMZ first reported ... we're told Amanda has shown clear signs of schizophrenia ... but doctors continue to perform tests to evaluate her condition.

Why Don't The Press Just Leave Her Alone Already, And Let Her Get Better In Private?

She's still wearing a crazy wig? That's not a good sign...

Do you really want to see her heal TMZ: leave her alone until she grabs life again

Could you care less TMZ: Then invite yourself in advance to the carnage festival for she's extremely vulnerable at the moment
just a professional opinion

Agree with those who say there should be a line drawn here. When a young person, celeb or not, is diagnosed with a serious mental illness and is under hospital care, it's time to back off. Once she is stabilized and transitioned to life in the real world, AND if she chooses to return to the public eye, it'll be game on TMZ. Until then, a little humanity, please?

I heard she moved her because she was sick of staff and patients selling info to TMZ about her. Just saying.

Blue wig and wrapped in a sheet. That B is still crazy, she needs to turn around and walk back into the loony bin.

I think the paps should stop following her. And TMZ etc... should stop posting on her. Quit being such cheap-shot artists. She is ill.

Is that a blue wig or a hospital cap? I feel like letting her wear wigs again would be kind of counter productive...
