DAVIDSON, N.C. – Suicide: The Ripple Effect is a recently released documentary of KevinHines’ life and Davidson LifeLine is showing it at William Amos Hough High School, with Kevin Hines speaking afterward.

The sobering fact is that suicide rates have increased 24% since 1999 and is the second leading cause of death for our youth. 16% of NC high school students report they have considered suicide. Suicide is a public health emergency and there is much we can do.

At age 17, Kevin Hines was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. At age 19, he attempted to take his life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. Seventeen years later he is on a mission to use his story to help others find hope and stay alive. This film is part of a global mission to help reduce the number of suicides and suicide attempts around the world. Through sharing stories of survival and recovery we are creating significant awareness of this health crisis, while helping people find the support they need to stay alive, heal and #BeHereTomorrow!

Kevin Hines says, “This film shows my journey to better understand the effects of my suicideattempt on my family, friends and the first responders who saved my life.” says Hines “My hope is the film will get people talking so those struggling can find ways to connect and heal”.
