Kevin Hines tells a crowd at the Colorado Mesa University Ballroom on Monday night of his battle with mental illness that led him to attempt suicide. Hines survived a jump off the Golden Gate Bridge. He said he felt deep regret the moment he went over the railing. When he hit the water, he was surprised that he was alive. Though he had broken numerous bones, he struggled to the water’s surface.


Keyla Trujillo was struck by the notion that every moment can be an opportunity to change someone else’s life.
The Central High School senior was one of hundreds of people, mostly local high school and Colorado Mesa University students, who came out Monday night for a talk by attempted suicide survivor Kevin Hines.
