Michael Douglas fully supports Catherine Zeta-Jones' decision to seek treatment for her bipolar II disorder again.

The 68-year-old Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps star is completely devoted to his Welsh actress wife of 12 years, who’s expected to complete a 30-day programme as a "proactive" measure to help with her condition, which can cause high and low mood swings as well as depression and which is less severe than bipolar I disorder.

A friend close to the couple told People.com: "He couldn't be more supportive, just like she is of him. They're solid.

"They're really, really devoted to each other."

The couple, who’ve been the subject of divorce rumours several times this year, were last seen together in New York last month at the Film Society of Lincoln Centre's 40th Annual Chaplin Awards Gala, honouring Barbra Streisand.

An eyewitness said: "Catherine was on [Michael's] arm much of the time. She seemed really relaxed and happy. I saw her with a cocktail and she was socialising and enjoying the evening . . . Nothing seemed out of the ordinary, and they both seemed to be having a good time."

The 43-year-old Rock of Ages star – who has two children, Carys (10) and Dylan (12), with Michael – first sought medical help in 2011 when she spent time in a Connecticut-based mental health facility and her spokesperson, Cece Yorke, confirmed she re-entered treatment in recent days.

She previously said: "Catherine has proactively checked into a health-care facility.

"Previously Catherine has said that she is committed to periodic care in order to manage her health in an optimum manner."

A friend of the star's added she simply wants doctors to monitor her medication this time, saying: "There was no big problem. This was just a good time to do it. She is in between projects.

"This has always been part of the plan. She would manage her health. She is vigilant about it."
