Should Mental Ilness be Grounds for Divorce?
Brandon Marshall & Borderline Personality Disorder
Recent stories surrounding Brandon Marshall, MVP and new NFL Wide Receiver for the Chicago Bears, have started some heated discussions. Mr. Marshall has publicly declared that he suffers an emotional disorder called Borderline Personality Disorder, also called BPD. With his wife standing right by his side, Mr. Marshall answered questions about his past behavior and the disease he is trying to give voice to. During a press conference, the calm and articulate Brandon provided unrehearsed responses to a range of questions that were personal and way beyond the scope of “on the field” behavior. However, much of the reaction to his comments that followed the interview revealed the troubled stigma associated with mental illness.
In this broadcast Drs. Aaron Jamal and Margaret Jamal will explore the question of how to handle mental illness in a relationship. It will feature insight into couples therapy from licensed mental Health therapist, Midge Lansat alng with couples counselors Drs. Helen and Robert Evans.
