Kevin Hines is a survivor–of a suicide attempt. At age 18 Kevin jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge. He acknowledges that a number of things happen that are miraculous in terms of his survival. Perhaps the greatest result is that Kevin now dedicates his life to advocacy and education about mental health issues and the great need for more mental health care. At birth, Kevin was a meth baby. He was placed in foster care. Was adopted by a loving family. But the demons in his body as a result of the drugs, plagued him. He comes to his work with incredible passion, understanding, and hope.
