Fetterman released from hospital treatment for depression
Fetterman also suffered a stroke in May during the Pennsylvania Senate primary and was sidelined for months. He continued to struggle with auditory processing and uses transcription technology to help him speak to colleagues and conduct Senate business. Doctors have said that depression is common among stroke survivors.
“I’ll have more to say about this soon, but for now, I want everyone to know that depression is treatable and treatment works,” Fetterman said. “It’s not about politics – right now there are people suffering from depression in red counties and blue counties. If you need help, please get help.
Fetterman posted a photo of him on his Twitter account on Friday evening, giving a thumbs up while getting into a vehicle. “I’m thrilled to be the father and husband I want to be, and the senator from Pennsylvania deserves. Pennsylvanians have always had my back, and I will always have theirs.
