After checking in an out of the UCLA Medical Center's psych ward, Justin Chambers is doing just fine, according to his Grey's Anatomy costars.

"[Justin] just needed a break," says James T. Pickens, who recently spoke with Chambers. "He said, 'Man I'm fine.'"

At the NAACP Image Awards Nominee luncheon Saturday in Beverly Hills, Pickens told PEOPLE that Chambers, who recently left town, was headed to Arizona with his family because he just wanted to chill. "[He] thanked everybody for their concern but everybody's good," says Pickens.

Also at the luncheon, Chandra Wilson said, "Everybody goes through stuff. It's no different than anybody else in the world. We just happen to be in the public eye . . . Justin's doing just fine."

A rep for Chambers said the actor, who plays Dr. Alex Karev on Grey's Anatomy, chose to voluntarily check himself into the psych ward because he was exhausted and suffers from a sleeping disorder.

The UCLA Medical Center is the same facility where Britney Spears was recently under a 72-hour psychiatric hold.
