Pennsylvania Sen. John Fetterman was admitted to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, for treatment of clinical depression.
According to a statement released by his chief of staff, Fetterman’s depression had worsened in recent weeks, although he had experienced it on and off throughout his life.
On Monday, Fetterman was assessed by Dr. Brian P. Monahan, the attending physician of the United States Congress, and was recommended for inpatient care at Walter Reed.
Fetterman voluntarily agreed to receive treatment, and after being examined, the doctors confirmed he is receiving the care he needs, and will soon be back to his normal self.
Last week, Fetterman was hospitalized after feeling lightheaded. It was confirmed that he did not suffer from another stroke. Fetterman had a debilitating stroke during the 2022 election campaign.
In a tweet, Fetterman’s wife, Gisele Fetterman, said that after everything he has been through over the past year, there was no one who wanted to talk about his health less than her husband. She expressed pride in him for seeking help and encouraged people to take care of themselves and their loved ones.
