Kids’ Minds Matter – the Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida mental health fund – is advocating for the estimated 46,000 Southwest Florida children who have or will have a mental or behavioral health disorder by working to erase the stigma, educate the region and gain financial support for greatly needed services.

You can become an advocate by joining us our annual Secret Garden Gala! Guests and sponsors will enjoy hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, dinner, entertainment, and hear from global speaker Kevin Hines, Author & Mental Health Advocate.

Keynote Speaker - Kevin HinesKeynote Speaker – Kevin Hines

Kevin Hines is a global speaker, best-selling author and mental health advocate who reaches audiences with his story of an unlikely survival and his strong will to live. Two years after he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder (at 19 years of age), he attempted to take his own life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. He is one of only 34 people (less than 1%) to survive the fall.
