The Bears’ Brandon Marshall has never been one to shy away from his personal life and the struggles he has faced. Brandon Marshall recently had a speaking engagement at the Mental Illness Convention where he shared his story about the treatment he received for Borderline Personality Disorder. For those unaware of the disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder is a condition in which people have long-term patterns of unstable or turbulent emotions, such as feelings about themselves and others. The Convention proved to be very therapeutic for Marshall as spoke for nearly an hour. Marshall candidly told his life story in gritty detail, challenged the stigmas against those with mental illnesses, offered solutions to aid potential patients and pledged his commitment to educate. Below is Brandon Marshall speaking about his experience and his disorder:

“If it’s me suffering to help thousands, and maybe millions in the world, I wouldn’t change it for nothing,” Marshall said. “It started with me falling on my face.

While many have wondered if his disorder has slowed down his abilities on the field, his numbers clearly have dismissed any of those doubts. During the 2007 season with the Denver Broncos, Marshall posted team-highs and career-highs in receptions (102), receiving yards (1,325) and receiving touchdowns (7). On December 13, 2009, Marshall set an NFL record for receptions in a game with 21. He is also one of only five players in NFL history to catch at least 100 passes in three consecutive seasons. Marshall will look to add to his resume at his new team the Chicago Bears.
