Cracked Not Broken: The Kevin Hines Story
Kevin Hines is a mental health advocate, award-winning global speaker, bestselling author and documentary filmmaker who reaches audiences with his story of an unlikely survival and his strong will to live. Two years after he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, he attempted to take his life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. He is one of only thirty-four to survive the fall, and the only one to regain full physical mobility. The fall would break his body, but not his spirit.
Today, Kevin dedicates his life to saving lives by spreading the message of hope and sharing his art of living mentally well. Kevin’s story is a remarkable testament to the strength of the human spirit and a reminder for us to love the life we have. He received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Council of Behavioral Health. Kevin also was named a SAMSHA Voice Awards Fellow and an Achievement Winner by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Premiere of “The Family Experience,” a short, documentary film produced by NAMI Mercer in collaboration with Princeton Community TV.
