Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones Getting Treated for Bipolar Disorder


One of the most highly regarded actresses in Hollywood, Catherine Zeta-Jones, became the latest in a long line of celebrities that have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. According to a report by People magazine, the 41-year-old star recently spent five days at a mental health facility getting help for her bipolar II disorder.

As per a statement from her representative, it was revealed that Zeta-Jones checked into the facility due in large part to the stress she’s undergone in the last year. This past year, of course, Zeta-Jones has been by her husband Michael Douglas’ side as he’s battled a stage 4 cancer diagnosis.

The particular form of bipolar disorder that Zeta-Jones has been diagnosed with is marked by irritation and elevated mood. While bipolar II is, like most mental health disorders, troublesome – it is not as debilitating as bipolar I. That condition features heavy mood swings and severe mood elevation known as mania.

Most individuals who suffer from bipolar II can continue to function “normally” on a daily basis. This serves in stark contrast to individuals who suffer from bipolar I, a condition that at times accompanies fears related to suicide.

By utilizing treatments such as lithium or other mood stabilizes and psychotherapy, people suffering from this condition can generally have a positive prognosis for the future. This appears to be acknowledged by Zeta-Jones’ rep in the statement given to People magazine:

She's feeling great and looking forward to starting work this week on her two upcoming films."
