Amanda Bynes was DENIED release from the psych ward.

Amanda is convinced that she is able to take care of herself outside of the the psychiatric facility where she's staying in. Bynes' lawyer says that the doctors have “no legal right” to keep Amanda detained beyond the two weeks that the judge had originally ordered.

The hospital staff reports that Bynes is better under medication but they still feel a need to monitor her mental health. Reportedly the doctors are not ready to release Amanda because they fear she will not continue to stay medicated and her serious state of denial.

Amanda has been on 5150 hold since she caused a driveway fire in California.
