Late last month, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall became the second major figure to disclose a borderline personality disorder diagnosis this summer. The disclosure came on the heels of Dr. Marsha Linehan's revelation in late June. But, does this mark a turning point in the fight against stigma?
Marshall does seem intent on educating the public about BPD. He told the Sun-Sentinel newspaper that he is trying to become an advocate for greater awareness and medical coverage for the disorder (Marshall recently completed a treatment program at McLean Hospital outside of Boston that cost upwards of $60,000).
What do you think? Does Marshall's disclosure change the "face of BPD?"
