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.

This is nobody's business. Good for her if she didn't want to keep it to herself as a way to encourage others to seek treatment. If she did it out of fear someone would leak it, that totally sucks.

Good for her. She is taking responsibility for herself and her family in the long run by entering rehab.

The dehydration and exhaustion excuse has been used too many times. So I guess now it's "rehab for bipolar"? Try again.

I was at the place she was previously. It's Silver Hills Hospital in Conneticut. They have an inpatient residential program for depression, bi-polar and other mental issues. I was in for depression. It's also a substance recovery place but seperate from those who are depressed. I take it she's in for depression and bi-polar and is trying to get her meds tweeked. Good for her. Very hard road being bi-polar. Day by day living.

IF she is 43 then Im 12 years old. She is more 53 years old I would say if not older.

Bipolar...that sucks but she is smart enough to know she needs help. Gotta say though, pretty Catherine DOES NOT look anywhere near the 43 years of age she is trying to tell everyone. Look at those wrinkly eyes, she looks like a real attractive 53 year old. It totally explains why she married old man Douglas, now that she is 53 and closer to his age.

To start... you need a minimum of at least 90 days to make any sort of progress if you're checking into any kind of treatment facility whether it be rehab or a mental institution. Thinking 30 days will cure you over night is a joke and a waste of your time and money. However, props to her for checking herself in voluntarily. It takes some kind of heart for that second step. The first step is recognizing you got a problem.

I hope she continues to do well. She seems like a good person who's had a lot of stress in her life. And she's married to one of my favorite actors! And thanks, tmz, for once not calling it a fricken rehab!
