LOS ANGELES, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Troubled starlet Amanda Bynes is "doing much better" following her second hospitalization in a 5150 hospitalization last October.

A family source told ABC News the former actress has been making strides in her recovery and "is clear-headed [and] more focused."

"She has her own apartment and is much happier," said the insider. "She and her parents are getting along and Amanda is clear-headed, more focused and has more independence."

Bynes, 28, was released from the psychiatric hold later in October and made headlines after she was spotted wandering the streets of Los Angeles, and because of tweets she sent regarding her disagreements with her parents. According to People, Bynes will be under their conservatorship until a hearing on June 23.

News of her recovery follows reports in January that a Los Angeles district attorney decided not to pursue a case involving Bynes' second DUI.
