Everything changed in 2011 when Brandon Marshall was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder.
While he triumphed under the stadium lights as one of the best wide receivers in professional football, his
personal life was in turmoil. For years he struggled with the emotional instability that had crept its way into
his life most importantly his relationships and his career. With a diagnosis in hand New York Giants All-Pro,
Brandon Marshall was ready to face a different type of opponent.

The unfortunate story of millions of Americans impacted by mental illness and disorders is in the numbers.
The number of youth in juvenile justice systems, the number of untreated youth, the number of youth
suicides – each of these numbers is TOO HIGH.
Change starts by inviting every individual in remission, patient, provider, and loved-one to be a part of a
sustainable conversation. Each of us needs to say #IamAware that there is #NoStigma in your diagnosis.
Then we extend an open mind, heart, and hand to someone who needs to hear and see acceptance. Without
the stigma, treatment becomes a reality and the numbers start to go down.
