Surviving A Suicide Attempt: Kevin Hines’ Story

Oct 12, 2015

Some people reach a point where they feel the only solution to their problems is to take their own lives. Kevin Hines reached that point and chose to jump off the Golden Gate Bridge. He is one of the few to survive that leap and today, he is a mental health advocate and author of the book “Cracked, Not Broken.” He joins us to tell his story and talk about mental health. We’ll also hear from local mental health providers about where help is available.
