Patrick Kennedy talks with Mike Barnicle about “A Common Struggle”

Former Congressman Patrick Kennedy, son of the late, longtime Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy, talks with Mike Barnicle about his new memoir, “A Common Struggle,” which highlights his struggle with painkillers and bipolar disorder, along with his family’s own private struggles. “The stories and anecdotes that you recount have been public knowledge or in the public prints for years. Now they are in the book…. Is your relationship different now with members of your family because it’s all in book form as your story?,” asks Mike. Watch the revealing conversation here and learn from Kennedy, now a leading advocate for mental health and substance abuse care, how his family has reacted to this book. Only on MSNBC’s Morning Joe.
