Fetterman's Battle With Clinical Depression Ends in a Stunning Victory!

Fetterman’s Battle With Clinical Depression Ends in a Stunning Victory!

Sen. John Fetterman was released from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Friday. Since the middle of February, he had been getting treatment for clinical depression there.

Joe Calvello, who works for Fetterman’s office, said in a statement that the Democratic senator is back in Braddock, Pennsylvania, to spend “the next two weeks” with his family and constituents. He plans to go back to Washington, D.C., on April 17, when the Senate starts meeting again.

Fetterman said Friday, “I am so happy to be home.” “I can’t wait to be the husband and father I want to be and the senator Pennsylvania needs.”

Fetterman also thanked the team at Walter Reed Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, in his statement.

“I’m very thankful for the wonderful people at Walter Reed. Fetterman said, “The care they gave me made a big difference in my life.” “I’ll have more to say about this soon, but for now I want everyone to know that depression can be treated, and that treatment works. This has nothing to do with politics. There are people with depression in both red counties and blue counties right now. If you need help, please get help.”

In a news release, Fetterman’s office said that the senator was being treated for “major depression” by a team led by Dr. David Williamson, the neuropsychiatry chief and medical director at Walter Reed.

Williamson said in the release that Fetterman’s depression has gone away.

Fetterman checked himself in for treatment on February 15. The staff said he was having trouble with his mental health, which got worse while he was on the campaign trail recovering from a stroke he had in May.
