Catherine Zeta-Jones has checked in to a treatment center to get more help for her Bipolar disorder ... TMZ has learned.

We've learned ... the 43-year-old Academy Award winner checked in to the treatment center Monday ... and is expected to complete a 30-day program.

Sources connected to the actress tell us ... Jones' stint in the treatment center is a proactive measure. As one source puts it, "It's maintenance."

FYI -- Jones completed a stint at a treatment center in 2011 -- at the time, her rep said Catherine had "made the decision to check in to a mental health facility for a brief stay to treat her Bipolar II disorder."

Zeta-Jones was last seen in public on April 22 -- when she hit the red carpet at the 40th Anniversary Chaplin Award Gala at Lincoln Center looking healthy ... with her husband Michael Douglas by her side.

Tmz, reporting one persons own private distress for the sake. If she did something to anyone that warrants this level of I trusion I cud understand but she's not been arrested, there are no reports of foul play.but her name is emblazoned in bold red borders like its news worthy. Way to help out another individual. From the reporting staff that laughed at Britney until'it wasn't funny' and whine claim moral high ground in reporting Amanda binges 'we don't...but here is a link to our sister site'. Please it's f ing gross. What's worse is I get the feeling u have sources inside the institution. Yay!, seek help and ur private business will b splashed all over our website. Fk off

Brave and classy. She has been through a lot and still has the grace to publically and honestly educate people about a most-often misunderstood illness that creative types and regular folk battle in silence and shame. Get well soon!

I love Catherine Zeta-Jones! She is a great role model for others with bi-polar. The grace and class she handles herself with is a breath of fresh air and an inspiration!

I'm surrounded by a family member with this diagnosis. Car has been keyed and I have been physically abused. It's a serious illness. Nice to see some people can distinguish when they need help.

Glad she's getting help. Maybe this will help bring down some of the stigma of mental illness. People need to educate themselves. Just because you hear of mostly drug rehab, doesn't mean there isn't legit psych rehabs. rehab= rehabilitation= getting back functioning appropriately and healthily in the normal society.
