CHICAGO (AP) — An aide to U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. says the congressman is home in Washington after treatment for depression at Mayo Clinic.
Jackson aide Rick Bryant said Friday that Jackson is convalescing with his wife and children at his home.
The Illinois congressman went on a secretive medical leave in June, when family members said he collapsed at home in Washington. His absence was all the more notable due to the high public profile of his father, civil rights activist Jesse Jackson, who made bids to run for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination in 1984 and 1988.
Jesse Jackson, Jr., was being treated for bipolar disorder at the clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
His office said in August that he was being treated at Mayo because of depression, after a transfer from the Sierra Tucson Treatment Center in Arizona.
