This comes just after her husband, Michael Douglas, endured months of heavy treatment for cancer.
The Oscar/Tony winning star is said to have entered treatment for the disorder and looking forward to working on her upcoming films. Her rep had this to say:
“Catherine made the decision to check in to a mental health facility for a brief stay to treat her bipolar II disorder.”
The couple, who have been married for over a decade, are managed to come out on top through it all.
We think Catherine’s bravery will inspire others to seek treatment, if needed. Furthermore, her going public is sure to bring about awareness. The illness afflicts around 5.7 million people each year but often goes untreated.
