Kevin Hines’ will to live and stay mentally healthy were displayed in a pair of presentations at Penn College on Tuesday: “The Art of Wellness,” a professional development activity in Penn’s Inn during the afternoon, followed by a free public lecture in Klump Academic Center. Motivated by the speaker’s compelling tale of survival after a suicidal leap off the Golden Gate Bridge, audiences were empowered to develop strategies for maintaining their own mental health.
