My Ascension is a film that was created to inspire and educate audiences, while providing a spark to help individuals and communities enhance suicide prevention efforts and save lives.

My Ascension follows 16-year-old Emma Benoit, who was left paralyzed after her suicide attempt, as she works to walk again, and inspire others with her story.


20 young people die by suicide every day in the U.S. Suicide is a silent epidemic that is not receiving the attention it deserves. It is the second leading cause of death for young people under 25, and there are approximately 1.2 million suicide attempts every year. The ripple effects of these deaths and attempts devastate millions more.


Parents, please watch this with your teens so you can see this discussion afterwards, and maybe spark a discussion of your own.

Stigma is perpetuated when we don’t talk about hard topics like suicide. Help us break the stigma.
