Last summer, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall announced that he had been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD). Now that Marshall has been traded to the Chicago Bears, it was time to open up to his new city for the first time.
In addition to fielding some more questions about his disorder, the mini press conference that took place when he arrived on Friday provided an opportunity to publicize his new foundation, Project Borderline.
According to its website, the mission of Project Borderline is to "spread the word about [BPD], fight stigma, educate, advocate, reach out, bridge the gap, and change the face and the future of this disorder."
Marshall said the foundation’s mission is to “use my family's experiences to educate."
"The turmoil on and off the field really hit home with me. This is the perfect time to show everyone the progress I have made.”
