Catherine Zeta Jones, the glamorous wife of actor Michael Douglas, suffers the painful effects of bipolar disorder. As this ABC News article and video explains, bipolar disorder, a cause also closely associated with actress and advocate Glenn Close (whose sister is diagnosed with bipolar disorder), can be brought on during any stage of life, usually by stress. We want to draw our readers’ attention to these six-million sufferers, who can be suicidal in extreme cases. The American Mental Health Foundation is generally devoted to research in these areas (AMHF is a supporter of a cutting-edge nonprofit called Suicide Prevention International) as bipolar disorder effects individuals, even “the rich and famous,” in all phases of the life cycle. No one is immune.
