Amanda Bynes is "happy, healthy, and excited about the future".

The She's The Man actress - who turned 30 yesterday - has finally overcome problems which saw her placed under a conservatorship and endure stints in rehab and psychiatric facilities and is focused on her studies at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) in Los Angeles.

Her family's attorney, Tamar Arminak, told E! News: "She is doing great. She is happy and healthy, and excited about the future."

A source added: "She seems to still be doing great and seems really focused on school."

Amanda returned to the school in October 2015 after reportedly being kicked out the year before after she allegedly turned up to class under the influence of marijuana and offered students money to do her homework.

The Easy A star, who was released from a psychiatric facility in October 2014 after less than a month of treatment, was first arrested for Driving Under the Influence [DUI] in 2012, but avoided jail time by completing inpatient treatment and was placed on three years' probation in early 2014.

The troubled actress was also arrested for a DUI in the early hours of September 28, 2014 but the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office opted not to press charges "after much deliberation and review."

She was placed under the conservatorship of her mother Lynn in August 2013 after she set fire to a driveway.
