Presented by Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center
Opening remarks from retiring Bert Nash CEO David Johnson and incoming CEO Patrick Schmitz will precede a presentation by Kevin Hines who is a brain/mental health advocate, award-winning global speaker, bestselling author and documentary filmmaker. At 19, Hines attempted to take his life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. He is one of only 36 people to survive the fall, which broke his body, but not his spirit. Today, Kevin is dedicated to saving lives by spreading the message of hope and sharing his art of living mentally well.
Following his presentation, Kevin will facilitate a panel discussion at 7:45 of local community members, including Officer Amber Rhoden from the Lawrence Police Department Mental Health Team; life coach and author Jay Pryor; and others.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and the Bert Nash Center is honored to highlight mental health awareness in our community as well as a transition of local leadership with this event you will not want to miss. More information about Kevin Hines can be found at kevinhinesstory.com.
