Patrick J. Kennedy took to Twitter Friday to honor the memory of his niece, Saoirse Kennedy Hill, by championing her commitment to mental health awareness. Ted Kennedy’s son referenced an op-ed Hill wrote for her high school newspaper about struggling with depression.
Kennedy tweeted a heartfelt message encouraging others to read Hill’s words. “Saoirse’s sincere account of her depression is a powerful reminder of how so many people suffer alone and feel isolated,” Kennedy wrote.
