VP Biden to attend mental health forum in Mass.
BOSTON (AP) -- Vice President Joe Biden is planning to join Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and former U.S. Rep. Patrick Kennedy for a forum on policies that affect people with mental illness, intellectual disabilities or addiction.
The two-day event marks the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's signing of the Community Mental Health Act.
Chelsea Clinton and Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who's been treated for a personality disorder, also will attend the opening night gala and forum.
Biden, Sebelius and Marshall are expected to be event speakers.
Clinton, vice chair of the Clinton Foundation, will moderate a conference panel on public health and community approaches to addressing behavioral health disorders.
Wednesday night's gala will be followed by a daylong conference Thursday at the Westin Copley Place in Boston.
