Amanda Bynes has been released from the rehab facility where she's been receiving treatment for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder since September, a family spokesperson announced Thursday. Now she's thinking about a fashion design college major.
"Amanda and her entire family would like to thank everyone who's contacted them with good thoughts and wishes for Amanda's recovery," Tamar Arminak, Bynes' mother's attorney, told People magazine in a statement
. "Amanda has completed her inpatient rehabilitation and she's feeling better every day.
"She's now looking at various colleges with the intention of majoring in fashion design. She's mentioned before she's interested in creating a clothing line."

A 2012 DUI was just the beginning of Bynes' legal troubles and public downfall. Things came to a head in July, though, when the 27-year-old former Nickelodeon star was picked up by police and forcibly hospitalized on a 5150 hold after setting a small fire in the driveway of a Los Angeles-area home near her parents' house.
She was diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder and eventually moved to a fancy Malibu rehab center in September. Now, the actress is staying at her parents' California home and attending outpatient treatment.
Last month, a judge ruled that Bynes is now mentally competent
to stand trial for that 2012 DUI.
Her mother Lynn retains control of the actress' well-being and finances while she recovers.
"Despite the fact Amanda is no longer in a facility, her outpatient treatment is continuing," Arminak's statement continued. "She's very happy to reestablish the loving relationship with her family that she once shared."
