In this episode, Dr. Meeker and Emma Benoit discuss the hard topic of suicide in teens and what every parent should know. At the age of 16, Emma attempted suicide. 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 20young 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. If you or someone you know are experiencing suicidal thoughts, please contact the suicide and crisis lifeline 988 or visit988lifeline.org where you can chat live with someone who is there to listen and help.
