Kevin Hines, mental health advocate, award-winning global speaker, bestselling author and documentary filmmaker will share his story of survival and tremendous will to live.
He will present Hope Heals: An Evening with Kevin Hines at Hanover College, Lynn Center for Fine Arts Auditorium, 151 Scenic Drive, Hanover, IN 47243.
Kevin is one of a very few people to survive a jump from the Golden Gate Bridge. At the age of 19, two years after being diagnosed with bipolar disorder, his anguish was so intense that he thought jumping from the bridge was his only option. He instantly regretted his action. Kevin’s story is a remarkable testament to the strength of the human spirit and a reminder for us to love the life we have.
Kevin’s presentation is made possible through the financial support of the Community Foundation of Madison and Jefferson County to the Healthy Communities Initiative of Jefferson County for the creation and implementation of a Zero Suicide Plan for Jefferson County. In addition to this presentation, this plan includes training, community awareness/breaking the stigma of mental health and coping skills components.
Please note: the film “Suicide: The Ripple Effect” will not be screened at this event.
