Guardian Of The Golden Gate Bridge

When Kevin Briggs began his career as a highway patrol officer over 20 years ago, he never envisioned the life-changing impact his service would have on the Bay Area community and his own life.

Today, Kevin is highly regarded as the “Guardian of the Golden Gate,” for convincing people their lives were worth living moments before they attempted suicide at the Golden Gate Bridge.

Kevin joins Benjamin to discuss his unexpected career pivot from highway patrol officer to suicide prevention advocate and author of ‘Guardian of the Golden Gate: Protecting the Line Between Hope and Despair.’ He also explains why showing empathy over sympathy has led him to save lives, shares resources for those struggling with mental health, and shares tips on how people can offer support.
