When Kevin Hines was 19 years old, he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Two years after his diagnosis, in a desperate suicide attempt, Kevin jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge. He is one of only 34 people to survive the fall and the only one to regain full physical mobility.

As one of the most respected and admired voices of lived experience, Hines is a remarkable testament to the strength of the human spirit. He is the author of Cracked, But Not Broken, and travels internationally as an award-winning speaker, brain health advocate, and documentary filmmaker.

Hope Heals is NAMI Austin’s feature event for Mental Health Month and is designed to inspire the community to "Change the Conversation" around mental health and suicide prevention. The evening will feature a talk with Hines and end with a dessert reception and opportunity to purchase Hines' book and have it signed.
