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 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 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!
Our kids were highly engaged and the information was well received. I appreciated it so much and hope we can have another outing next school year!
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 for graciously providing our students with a driving simulation they will never forget. I’d especially like to commend your staff members, Cindy and Mike for demonstrating professionalism, friendliness and patience. Your generous offering of time, equipment and personnel will certainly assist our students int their lives out of school.
We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from both our students and teachers about both the presentation and the experience with your team. Our kid shad a great time, all while being educated.
Our students had very positive feedback regarding your team’s efforts. It was extremely rewarding to all.
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.
I just want to thank you so much for having the driving simulator come to Seymour High School this week. The students learned a lot from this experience. The feedback was more than positive!
I was so impressed. What you do will save the lives of many young people.
