Kevin Hines is an award-winning brain health advocate/mental health and suicide prevention activist who shares his story of an unlikely survival and his strong will to live. Alger County Communities That Care is excited to bring Kevin to the community. He will be presenting in the schools during the day with a Community presentation to follow. The community presentation is Thursday, May 12th, 2022, from 6:00pm to 7:30pm at the Mather Elementary Auditorium, 411 Elm St. in Munising. The event is open to Alger County and surrounding counties.
Two years after he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, Kevin attempted to take his own life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. He is one of only thirty-four to survive the fall, and the only one to regain full physical mobility. 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.
