Hollywood star Catherine Zeta-Jones has checked herself into treatment again for her bipolar disorder as a preemptive step

The actress said that her latest step is to ensure that she continues to be in good health, reported a news channel. "Catherine has proactively checked into a health care facility.

The Oscar-winning actress, who is married to actor Michael Douglas, decided to go public with her condition after seeking treatment in 2011. "There is no need to suffer silently and there is no shame in seeking help. This is a disorder that affects millions of people, and I am one of them," she said. Zeta-Jones was seen attending the Film Society of Lincoln Center's 40th Chaplin Award Gala in New York City with Douglas on April 22, but the actor went solo this past Saturday to the 2013 White House Correspondents Dinner.
