Suicide Prevention Awareness Month & Recovery Month Event

About this event

Kevin Hines is a storyteller and best-selling author. In 2000, he attempted to take his life by jumping off of the Golden Gate Bridge. He is one of only 36 to survive that fall. He now travels the world sharing his story of hope, healing, and recovery while teaching people of all ages about wellness and how to survive pain through resilience. 

Kevin’s compelling story has touched audiences across the world. The Arlington Department of Human Services is pleased to bring Kevin to our community - as part of Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and Recovery Month - so his story can touch your life as well.

Register today to join this free, live, virtual event on Wednesday, September 28th at 6:00pm.

Can’t make it on the 28th? We are also hosting two in-person, facilitated viewings of Kevin’s recorded presentation. Come to Central Library Auditorium on Friday, September 30 from 12:00pm-1:30pm, or Monday, October 3, from 7:00pm-8:30pm. Together with DHS staff, we will view the recorded presentation and have a live discussion afterwards. Register for in-person facilitated viewings here.

NOTE that the topic of suicide will be discussed which some viewers may find triggering. Clinical staff will be on hand virtually to provide support.
