Catherine Zeta-Jones in Treatment for Bipolar Disorder
LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones is seeking treatment once again for her bipolar disorder.
“Catherine has proactively checked into a health care facility,” her rep, Cece Yorke, told People magazine.
“Previously Catherine has said that she is committed to periodic care in order to manage her health in an optimum manner,” Yorke added.
TMZ reports that Zeta-Jones, 43, is expected to complete a 30-day program as “maintenance” to help her cope with the mental illness.
Zeta-Jones is an Academy Award winner and the wife of actor Michael Douglas.
She completed a stint at a Connecticut mental health facility back in 2011.
She has been open about her struggle with bipolar II disorder, which is a milder form of bipolar disorder.
“This is a disorder that affects millions of people and I am one of them,” she told People at the time.
“If my revelation of having bipolar II has encouraged one person to seek help, then it is worth it. There is no need to suffer silently and there is no shame in seeking help.”
