ABOUT "MY ASCENSION"

A suicide attempt left 16-year-old varsity cheerleader, Emma Benoit, paralyzed, but propelled her on a mission to use her painful experience to help others find hope, and shine more light on the fact that 20 young people die every day by suicide in the United States.

My Ascension is a feature length documentary that chronicles Emma's inspiring journey and quest to walk again, as she works to bring Hope Squad, a school-based suicide prevention program, to Louisiana. The film also highlights the stories of two remarkable young people who tragically did not survive their attempts, and we learn first-hand from their families, friends, school officials and suicide prevention experts about the devastating effects of suicide and what can be done to prevent it.

Following the screening, join in a panel discussion on how mental health issues affect the community, what individuals can do to fight the stigma surrounding suicide, and support those facing mental health challenges with other local organizations and community members involved in the fight against the stigma of mental illness and suicide.

  There are two opportunities to join us:

  • Monday, September 20th in Monticello, MN
  • Monday, September 27th in St. Cloud, MN

 

Please see the two attached flyers for all of the details and for the registration link.
