‘Stories of Hope & Healing’ set for April 8 in Hutchinson

“Stories of Hope & Healing,” a suicide and mental health awareness public event, is set for Sunday, April 8, at 6:30 p.m., at the Hutchinson Event Center, 1005 Highway 15 S, Hutchinson.
The event is free, open to the public, and no registration is required.
The event will feature two international speakers.
Kevin Hines is a Golden Gate Bridge suicide attempt survivor, storyteller and activist. Hines is one of very few to survive the fall from the bridge and is spreading the message of living mentally healthy around the world.
Hines’ will to live and stay mentally healthy has inspired people around the globe, and his compelling story has touched diverse and global audiences in universities, high schools, corporations, the clergy, military, clinicians, health and medical communities and various industries. Thousands have communicate to Hines how his story has helped save their lives.
Hines’ mantra is “Life is a gift, that it is why they call it the present. Cherish it always.”
The second speaker is Dick Beardsely, a Minnesota native, famous marathoner, farm accident survivor, and the survivor of a loss to suicide.
In October 2015, Beardsley’s son Andy, 31, an Iraq veteran, died by suicide after suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Beardsley will tell his story of exciting highs and his dark valley of despair and through that anguish to the great light of hope and redemption.
