Counsel Culture with Eric Brooker

May 27, 2022

My guests today are Kevin Briggs and Kevin Berthia.

While you might not know the name, they have gone viral on social media countless times in the last 10 years or so.

Kevin Berthia is a suicide survivor and prevention advocate. Kevin was born with a genetic major depression disorder. In 2005, at the age of 22, Kevin attempted to take his own life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. It wasn’t until 8 years after his attempt that Kevin was reunited with the officer who talked him back to safety. 

Officer Kevin Briggs graduated from the California Highway Patrol Academy in 1990. In 1994 he began patrolling the Golden Gate Bridge, estimating that he had dissuaded roughly two people per month from committing suicide. 

Kevin Berthia is one of those survivors. Today, we are fortunate to have both Kevin Briggs and Kevin Berthia on the show to share their story.
