ALTOONA, Pa. — Penn State Altoona will offer a screening of the documentary "My Ascension" at 6 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 5, in the Slep Student Center.
For years, Emma Beniot quietly struggled with anxiety and depression, too ashamed to share her pain with family or friends. At 16, she attempted to end her life; the self-inflicted gunshot left her paralyzed.
“My Ascension” chronicles Beniot’s recovery journey and advocacy work, while addressing the youth suicide epidemic.
The screening is sponsored by the Active Minds student organization and the Blair County System of Care.
