Amanda Bynes has checked out of a mental health facility after a three-week stay.
The 37-year-old former All That actress left the facility of her own accord, TMZ reported Tuesday.
She reportedly worked with facility staff to determine she was ready to return to her normal routines.
Now she is entering an outpatient treatment program to ensure she maintains the progress she has made during her treatment.
She is also regaining a sense of normalcy as she will reportedly be moving back into her own home.

Bynes has been under guardianship since 2013, but it ended last year to give her more freedom to make her own decisions.
TMZ previously reported that Bynes’s parents were not considering setting up another conservatory, as she was doing relatively well prior to her recent mental health crisis.
She was hospitalized after reportedly wandering the streets of Greater Los Angeles for four days right after her car was towed in Long Beach on March 15.
During that period, she was apparently in a manic state and walked around naked for some time.
Amanda was allegedly seen naked the day she entered the treatment facility, but a witness told TMZ that the She’s The Man star pulled over a car to get help.
She was apparently aware of her mental state and called 911 to report that she was coming out of a psychotic state and needed help.
After being captured, Bynes was initially placed in a psychiatric facility for 72 hours, which was initially extended while her team at the mental health facility developed a treatment plan for her.
Amid her mental health struggles, Bynes’s parents banned her ex-fiancé Paul Michael from having any contact with her after their four-year relationship ended in January this year.

“They don’t want her ex-fiance with him and he’s been ordered not to have any contact with her,” an insider told DailyMail.com on March 28.
“He doesn’t seem to have her best interests at heart, and her family has nothing good to say about him.”
During a conversation with the New York Posthe said, “She’s off her meds, and she’s still off her meds… She’s wild.”
Michael previously claimed that the two were now “friends.”
