Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones recently completed clinical treatment for bipolar II disorder, a psychiatric condition that is less severe than bipolar I.
Zeta-Jones is among more than 5 million Americans suffering with the disease. She says she hopes her highly publicized decision to get treatment helps others do the same.
"There is no need to suffer silently and there is no shame in seeking help," she told People Magazine.
Dr. Paul Hardy, a pastoral counselor with Recovery for Life, talked more about bipolar disorder and how it can be treated on the CBN News Channel's Morning News, April 26.
