The story of Kevin Hines, who at 19 attempted to take his life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge and is now a world-renowned mental health advocate, shows us the devastating effects of suicide and the tremendous positive ripple effects of advocacy, inspiration and hope that are helping millions heal and stay alive. Along with Kevin's journey, the film highlights the stories of individuals and families who are utilizing their personal tragedy to bring hope and healing to others.
