Kevin Hines

Kevin Hines is a global speaker, author and mental health advocate who reaches audiences with his story of an unlikely survival and his strong will to live. Two years after he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder (at 19 years of age), he attempted to take his own life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. He is one of only thirty-four (less than 1%) to survive the fall and he is the only Golden Gate Bridge jump survivor who is actively spreading the message of living mentally healthy around the globe.

In the summer of 2013, Kevin released his memoir titled, Cracked Not Broken, The Kevin Hines Story. It has continued to sell out and is on several bestsellers’ lists. His story was featured in the film “The Bridge” by the film director and producer Eric Steel.

Kevin believes in the power of the human spirit and in the fact that you can find the ability to live mentally well. Maybe not every day, but certainly most days. His mantra: “Life is a gift, that is why they call it the present. Cherish it always.”
