Man who survived Golden Gate Bridge jump to speak in Louisiana
Kevin Hines is a mental health advocate, filmmaker, and best-selling author. He’s also one of only a very few people who have survived a suicide attempt by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. Tonight he’ll speak in Mandeville, LA at an event titled Cracked but Not Broken: Surviving and Thriving after a Suicide Attempt.
Read more about this event, and its special meaning for the local community hosting Kevin tonight. Thanks to our own Christa who alerted us to this story! Sadly she wanted to attend but can’t, as she’s preparing to head to St. Louis for our iCarol Summit and the AIRS Conference. We have a good number of iCarol users and blog readers living in this area of the country, so if you do live in the greater New Orleans area, please consider attending this speaking engagement or sharing it with your friends.
