LOS ANGELES (AP) — Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones has "proactively" checked into a mental health facility for treatment of her bipolar condition, a spokeswoman said.

Publicist Sarah Fuller said in an email to The Associated Press late Monday that Miss Zeta-Jones "is committed to periodic care in order to manage her health in an optimum manner."

Two years ago, the 43-year-old Oscar winner checked into a similar facility for a brief stay for treatment of her condition, known as Bipolar II. The disorder is characterized by mood swings and depressive episodes and is commonly treated with medication and psychotherapy.

Miss Zeta-Jones has been one of the busiest talents in show business of late, appearing in such films as "Rock of Ages," ''Playing for Keeps," ''Broken City" and "Side Effects."

The actress's most recent treatment first was reported by TMZ.
