Opioid Addiction/Teen Suicide Prevention
Opioid Addiction Prevention
Opioid Addiction Prevention
When it comes to teen opioid abuse, a major problem is a teenager’s inability to comprehend his or her mortality. Teenagers always seem to believe they will be the exception to the rule.
Such a belief is more than problematic. In truth, it is downright deadly. In practice, when it comes to teen opioid abuse, nothing could be further from the truth. Teenagers are overdosing from prescription opioid misuse and teen heroin abuse all over the country.
Teen Suicide Prevention
Today, suicide is the second leading cause of death between the ages of 10 to 24. Suicide is also the second leading cause of death between the ages of 12 to 18. (2016 CDC WISQAR)
More teenagers and young adults die from suicide than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, stroke, pneumonia, influenza, and chronic lung disease, COMBINED.
Reality Check Game Show
The Reality Check Game Show will challenge and encourage students in a 60-minute teamwork-gameshow competition. Students will learn the dangers of opioid addiction through physical stunts and thought-provoking questions. Students will use our audience response system to compete to see who the most informed team is. Students will learn in a collaborative manner with an emphasis on fun and teambuilding.
Everybody competes and everybody learns!
I was so impressed. What you do will save the lives of many young people.
It was a great success! We are hopeful that it will make a huge difference in distracted driving among the students who experienced the simulator, but also the kids that they tell about it.
Your team was amazing! Jordan, Cindy and Mike did such a great job with out students at Harbor Beach, and our kids has a blast in the simulator.
Our students had very positive feedback regarding your team’s efforts. It was extremely rewarding to all.
I just wanted to share how much fun our students had with the texting and driving simulator event. The presenters were knowledgeable, engaging and very talented in their presentation to the students.
Thank you so much for having PEERS Foundation come work with our students at Laurens District 55 High School. It was a once in a lifetime experience and we know our students learned so much from the opportunity.
Thank you so much for coming to our school. This distracted driving program was a big hit and we heard the students talking about it long into the week. Thank you!
Thank you for the wonderful job Mike and his team did. The students really enjoyed the presentation. I heard many positive comments and they seemed very engaged. I also appreciate the fact that your team did a great job being on time and setting up.
That crew that came in was professional and efficient. They did a great job with a serious topic while at the same time providing a unique activity that engaged the students.
I honestly didn’t know how our students would respond to this opportunity. This major issue is too important, and the offer was too good, to turn down. I actually teach a Bible class later in the school day, so I asked for feedback from students who had experienced the simulation, and I received enthusiastically positive responses. One unanticipated outcome — the 10% discount on insurance when a student participates — only sweetened the feedback. Please keep up your great work with an issue
