LOS ANGELES (April 30, 2013)--Catherine Zeta-Jones, 43, has "proactively" checked into a mental health facility for treatment of her bipolar condition, a spokesman for the actress said.
Publicist Sarah Fuller said in an e-mail 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 Oscar winner checked into a similar facility for a brief stay for treatment of her condition, known as Bipolar II, which is characterized by mood swings and depressive episodes, and is commonly treated with medication and psychotherapy.
Zeta-Jones has been one of the busiest talents in show business of late, appearing in films such as "Rock of Ages," ''Playing for Keeps," ''Broken City" and "Side Effects."
Her most recent treatment was first reported by TMZ.
