“An Evening with Kevin Hines” will be held Tuesday, November 13, at 7 p.m. in the Topeka Performing Arts Center. The presentation is free and open to the public. It is brought to you by Shawnee County's new youth suicide prevention initiative, “Suicide: Talk about it. Save a life.”
Hines has become an internationally known suicide prevention advocate since surviving his own jump off the Golden Gate Bridge in 2000. He has a unique way of helping listeners understand the mindset of a person who is suicidal. That understanding then allows a parent or friend to help the person.
Hines will also talk to all five Shawnee County public high schools over the course of two days. He plans to share an open and honest message of hope that can inspire kids and adults who may be struggling.
