Patrick Kennedy has a new campaign he’s focusing on: mental health.” The former lawmaker “says that his primary hope for Washington lawmakers is to reassess mental injuries endured in combat.” He “said that the federal government should change ‘both its language and its action around these signature wounds to the war’ and treat them the same as other” types of injuries.
