Kevin is a mental health advocate, award-winning global speaker, bestselling author and documentary filmmaker who reaches the audience with his story of an unlikely survival and his strong will to live. Two years after he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at 19 years of age, he attempted to take his life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. The fall would break his body, but not his spirit. Come out to hear Kevin’s story, a remarkable testament to the strength of the human spirit and a reminder for us to love the life we have.
