At least once a week for almost 20 years, Sgt. Kevin Briggs would stand just a few feet away from a severely depressed person who had climbed over the rail in the middle of the Golden Gate bridge and was a step away from falling to their death. While they both stood there with noisy traffic and cold, strong wind creating insane vibrations, Kevin had to find a way to do whatever he could to break through and get people to decide to climb back.
In this conversation, Kevin shares the enormous challenges he’s faced whole life -- his own family’s history with suicide, a mom dying from cancer at 49, learning about his own cancer at 21 and then battling a severe depression of his own along with multiple heart operations all while dealing with people at their darkest hour.
We all have moments of despair so I hope that, in this brief conversation with the man who’s become known as the “Guardian of the Golden Gate,” you can borrow from the powerful technique and messages that he used too help hundreds of people save themselves.
