Cracked not Broken: The Kevin Hines Story
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 34 people (less than one percent) to survive the fall. Kevin shares how he traveled to the Bridge, his feelings of helplessness yet desire for someone to help, his interactions with others that day and the impact you can have to change a life.
In 2013, Kevin released his memoir titled, Cracked Not Broken, The Kevin Hines Story. It is on several bestsellers’ lists and inspired a film called “The Bridge”.
Kevin believes in the power of the human spirit and that you can live mentally well. Maybe not every day, but certainly most days. His will to live and stay mentally well has inspired thousands worldwide.
