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 as part of the Excellence in Leadership Initiative (ELI) Speaker Series.
Hines 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.
His will to live and stay mentally well has inspired people worldwide. His compelling story has touched diverse, global audiences within colleges and universities, high schools, corporations, clergy, military, clinicians, health and medical communities, law enforcement organizations, and various industries. Thousands have communicated to Hines that his story helped save their lives. He has reached millions with his story.
His story was featured in the 2006 film The Bridge by the film director and producer Eric Steel.
