In this episode, Patrick welcomes Kevin Briggs. Kevin Briggs is a retired California Highway Patrol officer who spent more than 17 years patrolling the Golden Gate Bridge. During that time he encountered hundreds of people who were troubled and had lost hope. They were ready to jump off the bridge and end their lives. Although a trained negotiator, Briggs also relied on his compassion, gentle voice, eye contact, and his innate ability of “listening to understand.” During his career, he encouraged more than 200 people not to jump, go over the bridge’s rail or come back to solid ground from where they had been standing precariously. These challenging, but rewarding efforts earned him the nickname “Guardian of the Golden Gate
Bridge.” Retired, Briggs is now dedicating his life to promoting mental health awareness and suicide prevention across the globe.
