I just wanted to send you and Kevin a HUGE THANK YOU for all that you did to make our event successful last Thursday. Kevin’s story is so touching and the reason why ONE Health Ohio has made behavioral health an integral part of our healthcare delivery model. Everyone was touched by his remarkable story and I am so honored he was a part of our special celebration! THANK YOU for all that you both do to spread Kevin’s message around the globe and the efforts you make to change lives through his story.

Megan Kovacich
Director / ONE Health Ohio



"Kevin is an excellent public speaker who is able to immediately connect with audiences of youth and adults.  Kevin is honest, courageous and not shy to challenge members of the audience to become allies of people living with mental illness.  He has an uncanny ability to speak both to people who profoundly understand mental illness (because they are living with it or love someone who does) and to people who know very little about mental illness. 

I believe, with my whole heart, that Kevin’s message saves lives."

Wende Nichols-Julien - J.D
Executive Director / The California Conference for Equality & Justice

"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."

Kevin Hines had such a powerful impact on our attendees and I received so much feedback about how incredible his presentation was. You're an incredible person, Kevin.

"I hope that you are aware of how much you have influenced my work.  I tell your story quite often and even when I don't...you are more often than not on my mind.  You are saving lives, my friend, but even more than you know because you are influencing others out there who are saving lives too.  In the military vernacular, you are a true force multiplier.

Thank you for being you my friend."
