Kevin & Margaret Hines were honored at the Annual Mental Health America of Georgia Casino Night for their "refreshing honesty, realism, advocacy, and appreciation of the complex conditions that contribute to mental illness is a much-needed guide through the darkness of societal stigma and discrimination."


"Enthralling! Your program gave us new insight which we can bring back to our jobs and use when dealing with students. Highlight of our conference."

"The entire world needs to hear Kevin's story. As a behavioral health program manager, I was looking for speakers to address suicide that would make an impact for our military. Every Soldier in the Army, and many in the other branches, have heard Kevin's story and it has changed lives. He is extremely articulate and profound as he describes his journey, and he is instantly able to connect to individuals in crisis. Recommend? Absolutely, and without a single doubt. If you need a motivational speaker who can break down all barriers of resistance, someone who can stimulate the mind as well as touch the heart, then Kevin Hines is your man. His message is vital to any suicide prevention or resilience program on the planet."
