Kevin Briggs: A ponte entre o suicídio e a vida
14:13 · Filmed March 2014 at TED2014 · Subtitles available in 30 languages

Por muitos anos, o sargento Kevin Briggs teve um trabalho obscuro, incomum e às vezes, estranhamente gratificante: Ele patrulhava a ponta sul da Ponte Golden Gate em São Francisco, um lugar popular para tentativas de suicídio. Numa palestra preocupante e profundamente pessoal, Briggs compartilha histórias daqueles com quem ele já falou — e escutou — sobre estar à beira da vida. Ele dá um conselho poderoso para aqueles que têm pessoas amadas que podem estar contemplando o suicídio.
