In September, 2000, Kevin Hines attempted suicide at the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. In October, 2017, he shared his story of hope, healing and recovery with the youth of Wood County, Ohio.

In this podcast, Hines expands on the story he told to junior high and high school students during presentations at Rossford, Otsego, Northwood, Perrysburg, North Baltimore, and Eastwood. He also spoke to the communities in Otsego and Northwood during his visit.

Our podcast also covers the need for mental health first aid training for both youth and adults, the ripple effect of suicide, how to talk about suicide fearlessly, and what you can do to help.
