Cracked Not Broken: The Kevin Hines Story
Virtual Presentation with ASK, June 10 @7:30pm
Kevin Hines will be back in Yorktown (virtually!) on June 10 at 7:30pm. Kevin was the keynote speaker at ASK’s Save A Life forum in 2016 and had a huge impact on all in attendance. Please share news of this wonderful opportunity to hear Kevin’s remarkable story and his continuing journey to support and remove the stigma surrounding mental health. I want to point out that Kevin is doing what he calls a hybrid presentation. He will be sharing his story and then discussing some tools that he uses and promotes for mental wellness. What a great end of year gift to give students and the entire community!
Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life. Kevin Hines is a mental health advocate, global speaker, best-selling author, documentary filmmaker and entrepreneur who reaches audiences all over the world 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. He’ll discuss his process for wellness, resilience and recovery. In order to be self-aware and cognizant of his mental wellness, Kevin has developed a 10 step evidence-informed regimen to stay on track and monitor the signs of falling off track. Clinical studies are discussed that prove why these are important to maintain wellness for everyone, not just those with a diagnosed mental illness. Audiences come away with a knowledge of how to build their own toolkit for maintaining their mental wellness, as well as the wellness of their loved ones.
This will be a live webinar and the opportunity to ask questions of Kevin will be available. There will not be a rebroadcast of this presentation.
