Amanda Bynes
could be confined to a mental health facility for up to a year … based on a ruling that was just handed down by a judge … our sources has learned.

Doctors at the facility where Amanda has been held asked for a long-term hold, and they got it.  Sources tell us the doctors then transferred control of the hold to Amanda”s mother, who is currently the temporary conservator.

Sources tell us … it”s unlikely Amanda will be held for a year.  In fact, we”re told the plan is to keep her in a facility for 60 days to stabilize her and then transfer Amanda to her mom”s home.

As for where Amanda is going … we”re told she is right now en route to the UCLA Medical Center for the long-term hold.

A photo agency sold our sources a picture of a woman they claimed was Amanda leaving a Thousand Oaks facility in a blue wig.  The lawyer for Amanda”s mother, Tamar Arminak, tells our sources the agency”s representations were false, and it was not Amanda leaving the facility for UCLA.
