Kevin Hines chose to live, one moment too late.
“The millisecond my hands hit the rail, it was an instant regret,” Hines said about his suicide attempt. He tried to take his own life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. He will share his inspirational story of survival on May 31 at 11:30 a.m. at the Lorain County Board of Mental Health (LCBMH) 50th Anniversary Celebration Luncheon.
Using his second chance to help others, Hines is now a suicide prevention advocate and powerful speaker on mental wellness. Today, Hines is one of the most respected and admired voices of lived experience. His story is a remarkable testament to the strength of the human spirit and a reminder for us to love the life we have.
Hines has been featured on CNN, Fox, Time Magazine, The Today Show, BBC, New York Times, Newsweek, Good Morning America, and more.
He will be the featured speaker at the LCBMH annual luncheon, which will be followed by a book-signing of his bestselling memoir titled Cracked Not Broken, Surviving and Thriving After a Suicide Attempt.
