“My Ascension” – To Be Shown March 16th
The Adams County Suicide Prevention Coalition (ACSPC) is hosting a viewing of “My Ascension”, a feature length documentary (90 minutes) that chronicles Emma Benoit’s inspiring journey following a suicide attempt that left her paralyzed. The movie shares her quest to walk again, as she works to bring 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. The movie will be shown on Thursday evening, March 16th at 6:30 PM at the John Wood Community College auditorium. A panel discussion will follow the showing of the movie. There is no cost to attend this movie.
