Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones is feeling much better now

Catherine Zeta-Jones checked into a treatment facility for help overcoming bipolar disorder last week.

The actress, 41, spent 5 days in a clinic after her worries over husband Michael Douglas‘s recent battle with throat cancer brought on the condition.

‘After dealing with the stress of the past year, Catherine made the decision to check into a mental health facility for a brief stay to treat her bipolar II disorder,’ confirms publicist Cece Yorke.

‘She’s feeling great and looking forward to starting work this week on two upcoming films.’

People who have bipolar suffer from sharp mood swings.

Bipolar II is a milder form of the condition and can be treated with medication or therapy.

Having had chemotherapy, Michael, 66, revealed that he’d been given the cancer all-clear in January.
