Understanding bipolar disorder

Dr. Drew and special guests talked all about bipolar disorder on Thursday.

It's on our radar this week because Catherine Zeta-Jones confronted her own situation. She is getting treatment for bipolar II disorder.

“Bipolar people are manic depressive,” Dr. Drew explained. “It is a brain disorder marked by intense mood swings, manic highs and depressing, rock bottom lows."

Hear more from Dr. Drew, Oscar winning actress and mental health advocate Patty Duke, “General Hospital" actor Maurice Benard and Dr. Carrie Bearden, who specializes in this mental illness tonight at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HLN.
