The Stanislaus County Office of Education (SCOE) is pleased to host bestselling author and documentary filmmaker Kevin Hines, who will share his story of survival during a free presentation at Modesto Junior College on Monday, May 15 at the East Campus CAT 218 building from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Hines survived a fall jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge and now he’s spreading a message of hope to save lives.
Two years after he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at the age of 19, Hines attempted to take his own life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. He is one of only 34 people to survive the fall, and the only one to regain full physical mobility. He is the only Golden Gate Bridge jump survivor who is actively spreading the message of suicide prevention. Today Hines dedicates his life to sharing his message of living mentally well and his will to live has inspired people worldwide.
The presentation is offered free of charge through SCOE’s Prevention Programs Department thanks to the sponsorship of the Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors and Behavioral Health and Recovery Services. Those interested in attending can register online: http://goo.gl/Yhx5Ab.
