Virtual Film Screening with Panel Discussion

Date: April 13th, 2021
Time: 7:00 PM-9:00 PM

My Ascension is an award-winning film that was created to inspire and educate audiences, while providing a spark to help individuals and communities save lives by enhancing suicide prevention efforts.

A FREE Virtual Event hosted by Ray of Hope Suicide Awareness and Prevention Task Force, MHA of Southwestern PA, and the Active Minds chapter at Pitt Greensburg, this free event will also feature a panel discussion with Emma Benoit and filmmaker Greg Dicharry, as well as local speakers.

Film synopsis: 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.
