As you may know, Brandon Marshall is an All-Pro wide receiver for the Chicago Bears. As you may not know, he also lives with Borderline Personality Disorder. In 2011, Brandon and his wife Michi formed The Brandon Marshall Foundation, now called Project 375, to use his story to encourage others suffering in silence to seek treatment.
Now he has partnered with the non-profit organization Bring Change 2 Mind, founded by Glenn Close, which works to end the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental illness. The non-profit is running a new campaign, #StrongerThanStigma, in which well-known men share their own stories about mental illness.
And in this exclusive video, Marshall tells his story. If you or anyone you know is struggling with mental illness, hearing him open up just may help. For more assistance, check out the links above.
