NY Jets far-reaching receiver Brandon Marshall envisions AI bringing mental health to a masses
New York Jets far-reaching receiver Brandon Marshall paid a revisit to Silicon Valley this week to try opportunities and intensity partnerships with tech companies around mental health issues. Part of a reason for his revisit was because, in 2011, Marshall was diagnosed with equivocal luminary disorder. He spent 3 months in an outpatient module and now recognizes that what he went by wasn’t unique.
“They’re concept issues — things we go by only as immature adults perplexing to find ourselves and navigate by a universe and with all of a stresses and challenges,” Marshall told me.
Since his diagnosis, Marshall has wanted to use his luminary standing to lift recognition about mental health issues, that are still, unfortunately, stigmatized in a society. That’s eventually a procedure for Project 375, co-founded by Marshall and his wife, Michi Marshall. With Project 375, a idea is to lift recognition around mental health issues — something one in 5 adults in America gifted final year, according to a U.S. Department of Health Human Services.
“I always say, football is my platform, not my purpose,” Marshall said. “There’s a singular event where there’s 100 million zealous football fans that we can pronounce to and speak to each singular day since they follow football.”
To date, Project 375 has partnered with Chicago Public Schools to offer behavioral health services to all students in a open propagandize system. It has also committed to investing $1 million to McLean Hospital — where Marshall went for an outpatient module — to account a residential module for immature group with rising equivocal luminary disorder. Project 375’s stream tech-based initiatives embody an e-newsletter, an online storytelling height for people with mental health issues, and some support for content messaging. So, right now, it’s flattering low-tech.
“To be honest, we unequivocally haven’t been on-going or adopted record a proceed we should have,” Marshall said. “That’s because we’re here now.”
Marshall filled his report with meetings during companies and organizations including Facebook, Singularity University, AI mental health startup X2AI and mental health therapy platform Lantern.
“I’m not an consultant in tech though we comprehend that we need tech to solve some of a issues in a mental health community,” Marshall said. “I know people well. That’s my space. All we wish to do is assistance people. we feel like a mental health tarnish is a final good tarnish in a nation and there’s dual things we always speak about. One is a intangible, and that’s lifting awareness. Where we’re during currently is where a cancer and HIV village was 20, 25 years ago. There are also a lot of people out there pang or pang in silence. Some of a hospitals aren’t permitted — they aren’t affordable and before we go, we would like to assistance overpass a gap.”
Artificial intelligence, Marshall said, is what will assistance move mental health to a masses, and that’s going to occur by partnerships between non-profit organizations like Project 375 and tech startups focusing on mental health. X2AI, for example, uses synthetic comprehension as a apparatus for psychotherapy. Its initial bot, named Tess, can reason conversations with people, yield coping skills and inspire altogether romantic well-being. Instead of portion 10 people a day, Tess can offer hundreds. Right now, X2AI co-founder Michiel Rauws told me that a association is looking into how it can work with Project 375. Marshall would also like to partner with a NFL around some of these technologies mental health technologies.
“Before we retire, we wish to change a proceed veteran sports proceed mental health,” Marshall said. “I wish to start with NFL. Some of a technology, we believe, should be partial of a worker benefits.”
