A spokeswoman for Catherine Zeta-Jones says the actress has proactively checked into a mental health facility for treatment of her bipolar condition.
Publicist Sarah Fuller said in an email to The Associated Press late Monday that Zeta-Jones is committed to periodic care in order to manage her health in an optimum manner.
Two years ago, the 43-year-old Oscar winner checked into a similar facility for a brief stay for treatment of her condition, known as Bipolar II. The disorder is characterized by mood swings and depressive episodes and is commonly treated with medication and psychotherapy.
