A story of hope
In 2005 Kevin Berthia was struggling with depression and decided to end his life on the Golden Gate Bridge. A police officer stayed with him for 90 minutes and saved his life. On The Point, we talk with Kevin Berthia about his experience and his work as a suicide prevention advocate. And we discuss supports and services offered through The Samaritans, and training opportunities for volunteers.
Guests on the program:
