11:00 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. | Session 1 Workshops

 

12:45 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. | Keynote: Cracked, Not Broken: The Kevin Hines Story

Presented by: Kevin Hines

The Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most recognizable structures to define a modern city. Yet, for author Kevin Hines the bridge is not merely a marker of a place or a time. Instead, the bridge marks the beginning of his remarkable story. At 19 years old, Kevin attempted to take his own life by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge – a distance which took four seconds to fall. Recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder, Kevin had begun to hear voices telling him he had to die, and days before his attempt, he began to believe them. The fall would break his body, but not his spirit. His story chronicles the extraordinary will of the author to live mentally well in the face of his mental illness: bipolar disorder with psychotic features. With each mental breakdown, however, the author’s desire to live mentally well– and to be a mental health advocate– pulls him from the depths of his condition. Kevin’s story is a remarkable testament to the strength of the human spirit and a reminder to us to love the life we have. His story also reminds us that living mentally well takes time, endurance, hard work, and support. With these disciplines in place, those living with even very difficult diagnoses can achieve better lives for themselves and those who help to support and care for them.

8:30 a.m. -9:15 a.m. | Keynote: What's Driving You??? How I Overcame Abuse and Learned to Lead in the NBA

 

Presented by: Keyon Dooling, Former MU Tiger and NBA Star, Founder of Gametyme Foundation

During his twelfth NBA season, Keyon Dooling stood at the top of his game as the designated

team leader of the Boston Celtics, firing up his teammates with the ringing challenge, "What s

driving you?" A few months later, he found himself locked in a mental institution, confused,

frightened and on the verge of losing everything. Now Dooling tells the whole truth about the

shocking childhood incident that shadowed him during his entire successful pro basketball career and the hidden trauma that led to his widely publicized breakdown. Join Dooling on his

incredible journey from the hood to the NBA and discover his revealing and lifechanging interactions with championship coaches Pat Riley and Doc Rivers and legendary players such as Shaquille O Neal, Gary Payton and Ray Allen. Above all, you'll discover how love, family and God empowered an athletic kid to not only make it in the world of sports, but to triumph over

incredible odds and learn what it takes to be an authentic leader.
