Jumping Off The Golden Gate Bridge: Mental Health And Suicide Prevention

Kevin Briggs saved hundreds of people from jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco while he served as a California Highway Patrol Officer.  Kevin Hines was 19 years old when he jumped off the same bridge. Now both men speak about suicide prevention.

Kevin Briggs will be signing his book,  'Guardian of the Golden Gate: Protecting the Line Between Hope and Despair' at 7 p.m. Friday, October 16 at Barnes & Noble Zona Rosa.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
Slow news days are a thing of the past. As KCUR’s news director, I want to cut through the noise, provide context to the headlines, and give you news you can use in your daily life – information that will empower you to make informed decisions about your neighborhood, your city and the region. Email me at lisa@kcur.org or follow me on Twitter @larodrig.
