Brandon and Michi Marshall will speak at the NAMI spring gala on Saturday, May 10 in Northbrook.
The event will be held in conjunction with the Brandon Marshall Foundation. Diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, the Pro Bowl wideout created the foundation to raise awareness for mental illness and help others gain access to the resources they need to recover.

The goals of the organization are in part to fight the stigma attached to mental illness, educate people so they know the facts about mental illness, advocate for public policy solutions, provide relief to those who are suffering and bridge the gap between patients, clinicians and the public.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is a grassroots organization dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by mental illness through support, education, advocacy, and research.

Tickets to the gala include dinner with an open bar, silent/live auctions and a keynote address from the Marshalls. VIP tickets are also available and include a meet-and-greet with Brandon and Michi.
