CHICAGO (AP) -- Former Rhode Island Congressman Patrick Kennedy says
Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. is facing a deep depression and has a lot
of work ahead of him to reach a full recovery.
Kennedy told The
Associated Press he met with the Chicago Democrat at Minnesota's Mayo
Clinic on Thursday for more than an hour.
Jackson is being treated for bipolar disorder and has been on medical leave since June 10.

receiving the best care available. He says Jackson recognizes the
challenges he faces and has great determination. Kennedy says he's
