In partnership with ISU Committee on Lectures
Kevin Hines’ story is a remarkable testament to the strength of the human spirit and a reminder for us to love the life we have. At age 19, Kevin attempted to take his life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. Many factors contributed to his miraculous survival including a sea lion which kept him afloat until the Coast Guard arrived.
Kevin now travels the world sharing his story of hope, healing, and recovery while teaching people of all ages the art of wellness and the ability to survive pain with true resilience. He has become a prominent international suicide prevention speaker and advocate.
