Active Minds is the nation's premier nonprofit organization promoting mental health for young adults.
Mental health is part of our everyday lives – sometimes we just need help noticing it. This Mental Health Month, we’re sharing 31 simple, unique, and accessible ways to make mental health a priority in your daily life.
Kevin Briggs shares his experiences while patrolling the Golden Gate Bridge as both an officer and a sergeant with the California Highway Patrol and includes his own personal story of physical and mental health challenges including recovery, military service, surviving the suicide of a loved one, divorce, and depression.
Briggs’ story has been featured in The New Yorker, People, and Men’s Health magazines and on The Steve Harvey Show and NPR’s Bob Edward’s Radio Show. Kevin also received the 2016 Visionary Leadership Award from the National Council for Behavioral Health.
