John Kevin Hines is known by Kevin Hines. He is a suicide survivor, and suicide prevention speaker, who gained nationwide fame for surviving an attempt at taking his own life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California.
Today we are having one of those tough but important conversations on The Viall Files. Nick is joined by guest Kevin Hines, a suicide survivor who jumped off The Golden Gate Bridge and lived to tell the story. This conversation is honest, inspirational, and educational when it comes to identifying signs of possible suicide ideations in yourself and those around you. Kevin shares his story, his immediate thoughts once his feet left that bridge, and how the experience has not only made him become a motivational speaker for suicide prevention and mental health but has motivated him to take his second chance at life at making sure that jumping off that bridge will never be an option. Committing to life is not always the easiest road; but as we learn in this episode, four words can make all the difference: "I Need Help Now." Normalizing and speaking about this topic is how less lives will continue to be impacted by suicide. “I immediately regretted it.” Make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to to be a part of our Monday episodes. THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS:HIDRATESPARK: for free US shippingHELIX SLEEP: for up to $200 offTRUVANI: Text FILES to 64000 to get the Protein Powder gift pick or $29.99Episode Socials: Viall Files @viallfilesNick Viall @nickviallKevin Hines @kevinhinesstory
