Former Rhode Island Congressman Patrick Kennedy is in town speaking with the addiction and mental health community. 

Kennedy has been advocating for better and more accessible treatment for addiction and mental illness for years. In 2013 he launched the Kennedy Forum to help focus those efforts.

He stopped by our studio to speak with Rhode Island Public Radio’s Kristin Gourlay and Scott MacKay about that work and his life after politics.

Kristin Gourlay and Scott MacKay tag-team a talk with Patrick Kennedy, former representative and now head of the Kennedy Forum, in town to talk about his new book, "A Common Struggle."
