Yet another celebrity has come out as suffering from a mental illness.
The Los Angeles Times reports, “Catherine Zeta-Jones… recently underwent inpatient treatment for Bipolar II disorder at a Connecticut mental health facility”.
Catherine, and others who are brave enough to discuss their mental health help us decrease the crushing stigma mental illness brings.
UPDATE: Catherine’s statement about the media attention regarding her illness: “This is a disorder that affects millions of people and I am one of them. If my revelation of having bipolar II has encouraged one person to seek help, then it is worth it. There is no need to suffer silently and there is no shame in seeking help“. Brava!
