The Doherty/Kelley families are honoring their father Douglas Doherty by hosting best-selling author, suicide survivor, and mental health advocate Kevin Hines to share his story of hope and healing for the benefit of NAMI North Central Pa.

Kevin Hines is a mental health advocate, award-winning global speaker, bestselling author, and documentary filmmaker who reaches audiences with his story of an unlikely survival and his strong will to live. Two years after he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder (19 years of age), he attempted to take his life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. He is one of only thirty-four to survive the fall. The fall would break his body, but not his spirit. Today, Kevin dedicates his life to saving lives by spreading the message of hope and sharing his art of living mentally well.

As a gift to our community by the Doherty/Kelley families, the event is free to the public. Mental health resources will be available throughout the Arts Center to highlight the importance of mental health awareness. NAMI North Central Pa. is dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with mental illness and their families through support, education, and advocacy.
