The Ripple Effect

At age 19, Kevin Hines attempted to take his life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. Seventeen years later, he still struggles with many of the same challenges that led him to attempt to take his life, but he is on a mission to use his experiences to help others stay alive. Kevin has also been one of the key catalysts in helping end a nearly 80-year long fight to construct suicide prevention net on the iconic San Francisco bridge.

Kevin takes a journey to better understand the ripple effects his suicide attempt had on his family, friends, and the first responders who helped save him. He’s also working to shine light on individuals, families, and organizations who are using personal pain to help others find hope that is needed for healing.

    Is it possible this will be shown on youtube or another forum for those unable to travel to one of the locations?

      Right now, it’s showing in select theaters across the globe. Groups who want to bring the film to their location can purchase a one time screening license for $995.

    This was a powerful film I believe it should be picked up by Netflix or HBO so more people can see what these brave people are doing together to decrease the stigma of those who suffer from suicidal ideation/mental illness/substance use issues/PTSD. The pain that unites those who are holding their hands out to others is palpable yet provides hope.
