Clinical Forensic Psychologist, Dr. John Huber

Senator Brown has been invited to speak in Portugal at the Consulate about the ‘American Dream’ so he will not be with us. Our guest this week is Clinical Forensic Psychologist, Dr. John Huber! We’ll be discussing the Golden State Killer, his modus operandi, the volume of his victims, the cold-bloodedness, the fact that he was a police officer, and how this compares or is dissimilar from other serial killers.

Dr. John Huber is a mental health professional and university professor that has been in mental health for over twenty years. His experience began as a School Psychologist. Today, he is in private practice as a Clinical Forensic Psychologist, and he is a practitioner with privileges at two long term acute care hospitals. He is the Chairman of Mainstream Mental Health where the goal is to help people get mental health services. The target market for services are underprivileged and underinsured youth, veterans, and their families.

 

Kevin Hines

How many people have attempted suicide by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge and survive to talk about it? Not many. Our guest and first-time author, Kevin Hines, did survive and now has found a reason for living after years of suffering without help from ‘bipolar disorder with psychotic features’. In his book ‘Cracked, Not Broken’ Hines presents a vivid and moving memoir of how he descended into mental breakdown, fought to overcome demons, and made it his ‘life’s work to educate people all over this great country, and around the globe, to prevent suicide and understand mental illness.  

Kevin Hines has been featured in the critically acclaimed film “The Bridge,” (a 2006 Documentary film), Interviewed on Larry King Live, 20/20, Anderson Cooper 360, Good Morning America, and Ireland’s famed Tonight with Vincent Browne. He has been featured in hundreds of radio, film, and television media outlets. Kevin has written countless articles about suicide awareness/prevention and ‘The Art of Living Mentally Well.’ His articles have appeared in the San Francisco Medical Magazine, The Santa Barbara Independent, New Voices at Bay, the National Council Magazine, the San Francisco Chronicle, Advancements in Psychiatric Treatment, as well as many others. He was most recently honored as a Lifetime Achievement Award Winner by The National Council for Community Behavioral Health.
