I met this someone today, He names is Kevin Hines . At the age of 19 in 2000, he tried to end his life by jumping off this bridge.
The sad thing is that he describes people seeing him crying and on the ledge and no one stopped him. Now he speaks about suicide prevention.
No one likes to talk about this but this is real. I am glad I am a mental aid first aider. I lost a friend to suicide by gun shot wound to the head. Now, I want to help prevent suicide.
I encourage my family and friends to take mental health first aid
