Catherine Zeta-Jones Seeks Treatment For Bipolar Disorder

by at . Comments

Despite earlier denials, actress Catherine Zeta-Jones reportedly entered a mental health facility to seek treatment for bipolar disorder, reports say.

One of Catherine's reps tells People "After dealing with the stress of the past year, Catherine made the decision to check in to a mental health facility."

The rep confirms it was "for a brief stay to treat her Bipolar Disorder."

"She's feeling great and looking forward to starting work this week on her two upcoming films," the rep says, adding that she spent five days there.

Reports say Catherine had been in Silver Hill Hospital in Connecticut for treatment, but Zeta Jones, 41, has apparently checked out as of this report.

Her husband Michael Douglas, 66, announced in January he was declared free of cancer after extensive chemotherapy and radiation treatment.

We wish them both only the best!

shame, have we really become a nation of stalkers,if cathirne wanted to share her story, thats a story i would read, having a farther , aunt, and son with the disorder,however we have noooooooooooo right to know something so personal! Further more her story wouldnt be about a celeb with bpd, to me it would show my son that he can dare to dream, most people with this disorder are made to feel like they are crazy or will be a underacheiver ,but look at what shes done with her life!cheers too you catherine,god be with you and your beautiful family!

It's nice of THG to publish this very personal story. Nothing like kicking a gal when she's down.
