In September 2000, Kevin Hines leapt off the Golden Gate Bridge, a method of suicide attempt that has resulted in death for most of the 2000 people who have made that jump since the bridge was erected in 1937.
But Kevin survived. He survived, and in the 16 years since his nearly fatal try, Kevin has become the bridge between the many mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, children, spouses, friends, and loved ones who made a similar acts. Each doing what they did to put an end to unimaginable suffering—and those left behind, wondering why? What could we have done to help?
Kevin shares his story through his best-selling memoir Cracked Not Broken, Surviving and Thriving After A Suicide Attempt, his movie which is currently being shown around the world; Suicide, The Ripple Effect, and also through his many speaking engagements where he fosters a critical bridge of hope between life and death for people caught in the pain of living with serious mental illness, difficult life circumstances, and more.
