DENVER, July 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- mGive, powered by Rally4, teams up with PROJECT 375 to raise funds, increase awareness, and build a loyal and active giving community. PROJECT 375 was founded by Brandon Marshall, All Pro Wide Receiver for the New York Jets, and his wife, Michi Marshall, who is certified in Behavioral Forensics and Behavioral Profiling and also holds a B.A in Psychology and a B.S in Criminal Justice from the University of Central Florida. Brandon Marshall is one of the most influential figures in the mental health community.

While Brandon Marshall triumphed under the stadium lights as one of the best wide receivers in professional football, his personal life was in turmoil. Everything changed in 2010 when Brandon Marshall was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. For years he struggled with the emotional instability that had crept its way into his life most importantly his relationships and his career. New York Jets all-pro, Brandon Marshall was ready to face a different type of opponent.

As he put the pieces of his life back together, he and his wife Michi took an oath to help others suffering from a mental illness or disorder. Together they co-founded PROJECT 375, a nonprofit organization dedicated to eradicating the stigma surrounding mental illness and disorders.

The Marshall's believe eradicating the stigma makes treatment possible – even for an individual playing arguably one of the toughest and most physical sports on the planet.

"We selected mGive because they understood our needs and could get us up and running quickly," said Carissa Johnson, Director of Operations at PROJECT 375.

"Health and wellness initiatives are at the cornerstone of our mission, so we are thrilled to support the Marshall's PROJECT 375 and the impact they are having on bringing awareness and education to our global community to support mental health and wellness," said Frank Richards, CEO of Rally4.

Nearly 100% of all mental illnesses can be treated successfully, yet two-thirds of individuals do not seek treatment due to the stigma. PROJECT 375 aims to eradicate the stigma surrounding mental illness and disorders.
