FROM NAMI CALIFORNIA: Kevin Hines, who jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge and Survived, Hosts this World Premiere Evening.
The Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission (MHSOAC) invites you to join them for the premiere of the documentary “A Choice to Heal-Mental Health in California” at 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 21, 2014, at the Crest Theatre in Sacramento in commemoration of May Mental Health Awareness Month.
This documentary, hosted by actress Mariel Hemingway and sponsored by the Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission, will air on CBS stations in California on May 31, 2014. The documentary details California’s groundbreaking approach to the prevention and early intervention of mental illness-an approach that is at the forefront of changing and improving the nation’s mental health care system.
Speaker Kevin Hines will host the premiere at the Crest. Kevin has a very powerful story; in 2000, he tried to kill himself by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge. He now reaches millions as he travels globally teaching others the importance of suicide prevention and mental health awareness. His book, Cracked Not Broken, is in its 13th printing.
This is a free event, open to the public. Snacks and beverages will be available for purchase. To make your reservation to attend, please RSVP to Communications Director Jennifer Whitney:firstname.lastname@example.org
