Advocate - Athlete - Entrepreneur
About Paul Marlow
For a big chunk of my life, sports was everything to me–I was an athlete first and everything else came a distant second place. In 2003 I was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays, but I ended up not signing and spent the following years as a two-sport athlete, playing baseball and basketball at Louisiana State University of Shreveport.
My dad was always my best friend and biggest fan, and my mental health struggles really began during the time when he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s and then the cancer to which he eventually succumbed.
I have been open about being willing to try experimental therapies and, in 2019, I undertook guided MDMA therapy journey (fully detailed blog here) seeking for relief from anxiety, depression, and PTSD. I have also microdosed psilocybin for the past four years to aid me in my quest for mental health happiness and entrepreneurial growth.
During my mental health journey, I’ve been constantly reminded that the struggles can feel like the loneliest place, but actually they’re shared with many, many others. I founded Never Alone on May 12th, 2020 with the goal of creating an open, welcoming community to share our mental health journeys with the reminder that regardless of the circumstances or struggle, we are Never Alone.
