Brandon Marshall | My Story

One of the most productive receivers in the NFL over the last decade, Brandon Marshall dominates his battles on the field, but it was on off-the-field battle that almost took him out.

His first few years in the league, Brandon felt like he was constantly in the wrong place at the wrong time. He felt like a victim of his circumstance, living on a “slippery slope” of negativity.

Through McClean Hospital, Brandon would eventually be diagnosed with depression and borderline personality disorder. He sought treatment, and let God into his life.

Studies show that nearly 10% of the US population suffer from depression at any given time. Now, Brandon identifies as a “goofball” and he is full of purpose, love, and joy.
