Zeta-Jones Seeks Help For Mental Illness


The actress first took steps to tackle her bipolar disorder
in 2011 when her husband Michael Douglas was seriously ill.

Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones has sought further help for bipolar
disorder in what her publicist called a "pro-active" move to take care of her
health.

It is the second known trip to a health care facility for the British actress
since 2011.

That is when news first broke she suffers from bipolar II disorder, a milder
form of the illness that is marked by sharp mood swings and erratic
behaviour.

Her publicist Cece Yorke said: "Catherine has pro-actively checked into a
health care facility.

"Catherine has said that she is committed to periodic care in order to manage
her health in an optimum manner."

The Welsh star, who won an Oscar for her role in the 2002 musical Chicago,
underwent treatment two years ago after her husband, actor Michael Douglas,
developed throat cancer.

Aides said it was to help her deal with the stress of coping with his illness
and treatment, which was successful.

No specific reason was given for the 43-year-old's decision to seek help this
time.

Bipolar II is marked by "less manic moods but more depressive episodes" than
bipolar disorder, according to medical experts.

It can be treated with medication or therapy.

Zeta-Jones was last seen at the cinema in February in the crime thriller Side
Effects, which received warm critical acclaim

My late mother had bi-polar disorder and she had a terrible life with it. I am glad to see that Catherine is getting the help she needs.

I'm glad that it is easier now to talk about mental illness and to get suitable treatment; it used to be considered almost shameful. A family member of mine committed suicide because of it in 2000 and another one is similarly affected but won't seek help.

I certainly wish Catherine well.

Yes, Catherine must be suffering badly , not sure there is a cure for bi-polar but I'm sure she will receive the best treatment.
