Golden Gate Bridge Suicide Survivor to Speak at Binghamton University


Have you struggled with depression? Have you had thoughts of suicide? Do you think that there is only one answer to your problem? There is someone who faced what you have faced and wants to help you. His name is Kevin Hines.

Kevin is one of the few survivors of a suicide attempt off the Golden Gate Bridge at the age of 19 and he is coming to the area on Thursday, September 14th.

Binghamton University’s Counseling Center and the Mental Health Association of the Southern Tier (MHAST) present “An Evening with Kevin Hines: Surviving and Thriving After a Suicide Attempt” in the Old Union Hall at Binghamton University.

It’s open to the public and begins at 7 pm. Kevin wrote a book called “Cracked Not Broken” and will talk about how his bipolar disorder led to his attempted suicide. He wants to reach out to those who are depressed and have thoughts of suicide.

Copies of Kevin’s book are available for presale at MHAST for $30 and will be available to buy at the event and he’ll sign them too. There will be information tables set up before the event from 6-7 by local agencies.

Earlier in the day, Kevin will visit SUNY Broome beginning at 11 am in the Decker Health Science Building, Room 201. This talk is open to SUNY Broome students and local school administrators and representatives.

You aren’t alone and Kevin wants to help you on September 14th.
