    I love the new site, but I love what you stand for even more, on and off the field. What an incredible way to make a positive impact in your profession, your community, your world, and the lives of young people everywhere. Keep doing exactly what you’re doing, Brandon. I know you want to win that Lombardi Trophy, and we Bears fans love you for it, but you’re already a hero. Period. Thank you!

    I think it’s great Brandon is getting the word out on mental health! I’m bipolar and done tons research on it. Too many people don’t get help and don’t get treated. The world need more people like Brandon with a mental illness to speak out.

    Hello Mr. Marshall thank you for sharing this information on the view i wouldn’t even known that May was mental ill awareness month. In 1983 or 1984 my mother check herself in a mental institution when she was 21 yrs. old I was 4 yrs old and that was the last time i seen my mom and now I’m 35 yrs. old before then i remember little things that my mom was doing that i didn’t know that wasn’t normal like staring at walls and she’ll just have me in the room with her sitting on the floor. wearing the wrong type of clothing that didn’t match the season. My mother realize it was getting worse for her and check herself in and decided to put me up for adoption and her reason was she wanted to get help and she wanted me to be in a better place cause she wasn’t capable to take care of me anymore. So i thank you for your story and educating society of mental illness. I hope eventually this awareness will have a national day like breast cancer awareness and have a color to wear in the games 🙂 One more thing before i go You’re one of my son top 5 wide receivers lol he play football also he’s 12 and he’s a defense end he says he’s going to be the next Jadaevon Clowney lol.

    Brandon-

    You said it all today with your donation. The Bears said it all with your extension. From a young adult suffering from BPD you truly are an inspiration. You got my attention with those green shoes. Now I’m learning your story.. And that I’m not alone. That I do have resources and support. That there is a up side to all of this. Thank you for what you DO and stand for. #MentalHealthAwareness #ChiBears

    Thank you for your honesty. So many people fail to understand the mental health and what it causes in one’s life. It has affected me for many years and I’m seeking treatment without meds. I thank you for sharing your story. I live with this daily. However I won’t give up. I will try hard and give effort everyday. My children need me and I need them. Thank you a yo you and your beautiful wife.

    I’ve been dealing with BPD for well over half my life and even in the mental illness world it is sort of the red-headed stepchild. Many doctors don’t even know how to treat someone with BPD. I applaud you for bringing BPD and other mental illness awareness. There is such a stigma even know and I’m glad someone who had a platform and voice do bring this serious issue further into the light.

    I’m so proud of the steps you are taking Brandon. I’ve followed your career for years and can see the changes you’ve made on the field. Your coming forward and acknowledging your diagnosis has helped many people. I wish others who suffer could have that same courage. I’m sorry to hear that ESPN is dragging up the past for you, but you are not that man now. We all have a past we can do nothing about. We do determine our own futures and you obviously have seized yours. Hang in there man. Good look to you and your family. I b watching on Sundays. Jim

    Brandon –

    My mother fit the profile for a BPD patient, but she killed herself in 1973 – long before BPD was ever classified as a personality disorder. I am studying to become a counselor, and I want personality disorders to be one of my specialties – particularly BPD. Watching your documentary tonight on the NFL Channel renewed my commitment to that. I am so proud of how you have handled this issue in your life, and your efforts to help others. You and your wife are the definition of the word “Awesome.”
