Kevin Hines was in town on May 11!
In September 2000, Kevin Hines leapt off the Golden Gate Bridge, the 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 is one of only thirty six (less than 1%) to survive the fall. In the 17 years since his nearly fatal try, Kevin has become the bridge between the many parents, siblings, children, spouses, and friends left behind and their loved ones who did what they did to put an end to unimaginable suffering.
His refreshing honesty, realism, advocacy, and appreciation of the complex conditions that contribute to mental illness is a much needed guiding light through the darkness of societal stigma and discrimination.
