My Ascension: A Documentary Film and Movement to Spread Hope and Fight Suicide - Film Screening Registration

WHEN: Wednesday, September 29, 2021, 7:00 pm

WHERE: Medfield High School Auditorium

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. In order to raise awareness and reduce the stigma of talking about mental health and suicide, the Medfield Coalition for Suicide Prevention (MCSP), a Medfield Foundation initiative, is hosting a screening of the film "My Ascension", which documents the true story of a young woman who survived a suicide attempt. A panel discussion of mental health professionals will follow the film. This event is intended for adults and high school students and is not recommended for anyone under the age of 14.

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 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.

COST: We kindly request donations to MCSP (see donation links below) if resources permit. No one will be denied participation based on inability to donate.
