Compass Health ‘Building Communities of Hope’ Gala

Benefit/Fundraiser, Health & Wellness/Nutrition, Parents/Parenting

This year’s event will feature renowned suicide prevention advocate and survivor, Kevin Hines, as the keynote speaker. All proceeds raised will directly support Compass Health’s specialized camp programs for children who face family and personal behavioral health and substance abuse challenges, Camp Outside the Box and Camp Mariposa. At 19, Hines attempted suicide by jumping from San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, placing him among just 1 percent to survive such a tragedy. Since then, he has become an award-winning global speaker, bestselling author and documentary filmmaker who shares his personal story of an unlikely survival and strong will to live. His recently released documentary, Suicide: The Ripple Effect, is being shown around the world, and his online videos have amassed more than 250 million total views.
