Ex-Congressman Patrick Kennedy To Release Memoir

A former Rhode Island congressman is hoping to change the way people view mental illness and addiction.  Patrick Kennedy is releasing a memoir today called "A Common Struggle" in which he talks about his family's struggle; which may stir up some controversy.  His brother released a statement yesterday saying many of the details in the book are untrue, and it's an inaccurate portrayal of his family.  Kennedy hopes one day mental illness will be treated with more urgency, similar to how heart disease and cancer are handled.
