Police were called to the Neighbours set when one of the soap's regular extras caused a disturbance that left the cast and crew concerned while the set itself was damaged.
According to the Herald Sun, the woman (who has not been named) started acting strangely and had to be taken to hospital by ambulance on Friday after slicing her wrist with a glass.
They were filming in Charlie's Bar when the incident happened.
All scenes was subsequently cancelled for the day and members of the cast and crew were removed from the set as an investigation took place.
Neighbours executive producer Susan Bower commented: "It was a bit of a shock. One of our regular extras wasn't really feeling the best and started behaving in an extraordinary way.
"She was very distressed and swung her hand and knocked a glass off a table."
Producer Neal Kingston added: "We were concerned for the welfare of everyone and removed all cast and crew until the police arrived to assess the situation.
"She broke a couple of items so we cleared the situation to make sure everyone was okay and waited for authorities to arrive. She was assisted by police and went willingly outside with them."
