Paris Jackson is continuing to seek treatment.
A source close to the Jackson family says that Paris, 15, may be headed to a longer-term treatment center out of state after her stint in a psychiatric facility at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles.
"Paris will be staying at least another week, and then she'll be going to a facility for additional care," says the source.
The move comes after much discussion within the Jackson family about how best to care for Paris. The teen, who has a recent history of mental health issues that include cutting, was hospitalized on June 5 for taking pills and harming herself with a knife.

Paris Jackson's attempted suicide came in the middle of another family drama: the Los Angeles trial centering on the Jackson family's wrongful death lawsuit against concert promoter AEG.
Like other relatives, Paris has been personally drawn into case. She gave a pre-trial deposition in March, and was on the list of trial witnesses for Katherine Jackson's lawyers, along with Katherine herself and Paris's brother Prince Michael.
Also lingering was the very real possibility she'd have to take the stand – a question that takes on new sensitivity in light of her recent hospitalization. In a 911 call released Tuesday, a dispatcher said Paris cut her arm with a kitchen knife and took 20 Motrin on June 5.
