The former Nickelodeon child star is still reportedly checked into a mental health facility.

Amanda Bynes was able to attend her own graduation from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) after being granted a day pass. Earlier this week, she posted a celebratory photo on her official Twitter account. See the post below:

According to a source from PEOPLE, the actress is still on her way to recovery in rehab. Bynes checked in to the facility in January this year. The move comes after she experienced a setback when she stepped back into the limelight.

The star was meant to make a Hollywood come back after gracing the cover of Paper Magazineā€™s November 2018 issue. But the pressure was reportedly too much for Bynes to handle and she began spiraling down into drug addiction.

The source told PEOPLE:

ā€œAmanda is still inpatient in a mental health facility. She was able to get an outing pass for a few hours for the special occasion so she could walk with the other students. But she left a little early and was back at the facility at the end of the graduation.ā€

Late last year, Bynesā€™ attorney Tamar Arminak spoke to people saying:

ā€œAmanda is doing great, working on herself, and taking some well-deserved time off to focus on her well-being after graduating FIDM in December.ā€

ā€œSheā€™s spending time reading and exercising, sketching for her new line and mostly making sure this time around she puts her needs first,ā€ the attorney added.
