Former Congressman Patrick Kennedy will lead a discussion on mental illness in West Hartford on Thursday night.
He is the son of Senator Ted Kennedy, and recently wrote a book called "A Common Struggle."
Thursday, on Better Connecticut, he talked about his personal battle with addiction to prescription painkillers and bipolar disorder.
He has now started a foundation to end the stigma and make sure mental illness is treated the same as other illnesses.
On Thursday evening, he will be speaking at Kingswood Oxford at 7 p.m. The talk will be moderated by Jenna Bush.
