I am excited to be invited to an event tomorrow, Dec. 2 with Brandon Marshall, NFL Miami Dolphins football player.  Brandon has been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder and has decided to share his story and develop a foundation to

•SPREAD THE WORD about BPD, a serious illness that affects a significant percentage of the population

•FIGHT STIGMA that for so long has been unfairly tied to this diagnosis

•EDUCATE people so they know the facts of the disorder, which is very treatable and has a favorable long-term prognosis

•ADVOCATE for the passage of legislation to support our cause

•REACH OUT to those who may not know what they’re suffering from or may not know what resources are available to help them

•BRIDGE THE GAP between patients, clinicians, and the public, and

•CHANGE the face and the future of this disorder so that those who have suffered in silence, who spent years of their lives feeling trapped by their own emotions, and who once thought that they had reached a place beyond hope will have the opportunity to build a better life for themselves

I can’t wait to meet this courageous young man.  Check out his website
