Actress Heather Locklear was taken to a hospital for a psychological evaluation on Sunday, TMZ reported.

Locklear threatened to kill herself and was reportedly acting erratically and trying to find a gun to shoot herself. Her parents, who were concerned for her safety, went to her house to check in on her. Locklear reportedly became violent, choking her mother and hitting her father before her mother was able to call the police. According to the dispatch audio, the actress does not actually have access to any firearms.
Fire and sheriff's department personnel responded to Locklear's home, then transported her to a nearby hospital.

A source toldPeople that Locklear has needed help for her mental health for some time, but that she has not been receiving treatment.

"She isolates herself, which only feeds into the other issues," the source said. "Of course, you can't force someone to get help they have to want to but it's hard for someone who is sick to make smart choices and keep at it. She has family and friends who are desperately trying to help."

Locklear was previously arrested in February for domestic violence and assault on three police officers and checked herself into a treatment facility in March to help with addiction issues
