Viewpoint: Catherine Zeta Jones’s treatment for bipolar disorder

Expert opinion from Professor Peter Kinderman, Head of the Institute of Psychology, Health and Society, on Catherine Zeta Jones’s treatment for bipolar disorder:

“Bipolar disorder is a very common and often distressing condition.  Many people experience episodes of depression and agitated distress when exposed to stressful and challenging episodes in their lives.  So Catherine Zeta Jones is certainly not alone in this respect. It is important that people who are experiencing mental health problems recognise that expert help is available to them. Psychosocial support can help people to talk through their problems and learn to manage their emotions. It is laudable that Catherine Zeta Jones has been open about her problems and is seeking expert help.”
