Parents: you won’t regret investing a couple hours to hear Emma Benoit’s story: “As I was recovering, so many people said, ‘Not Emma.’ No one expected that I would attempt to die by suicide. That’s one reason why it’s important to share my story: I want parents to recognize the warning signs in their children”. Join us on Sunday, August 20 at 2pm at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts to hear Emma speak and view her film “My Ascension”.

This event is geared towards breaking down barriers that many rural community members feel they have just by being rural. Our goal is to bring as many resources together both in the community and surrounding areas to provide education and access to services that community members may not have known were available. This can be education for kids, parents, grandparents, etc. It can range from personal care, to camps, to local recreation, to farm safety, to mental health awareness, etc.
Come alone or bring a buddy on this community walk to talk about mental health! Join us anytime between 9am and 11am. The I’m Glad You Stayed Project will be there handing out resources, including pamphlets and Just Keep Swimming bracelets, as well as other mental health awareness pieces. Help us to break the stigma of mental health!
