Mental Health Story: Brandon Marshall, NFL

He and his wife, Michi, founded Project 375, which seeks to change the way people think about mental health.

“I used to think that mental health meant mental toughness and masking pain,” Marshall says. “I was raised in a community where you didn’t admit to any weakness. As a football player, you never show weakness to your opponent. But when you think about it, connecting with those emotions is the real strength.”
