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.

Bryant says he's not sure exactly when the Illinois congressman was discharged. He says he hopes Jackson is back at work Monday.

Jackson went on a secretive medical leave in June, when family members said he collapsed at home in Washington. He was being treated for bipolar disorder at the clinic in Rochester, Minn.

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.
