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!
This was a win, win for all parties. The staff of PEERS Foundation had a great rapport with our students. The texting and driving experience is a must for all new drivers.
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.
Mike and his team were amazing to work with for the General Motors UofM recruiting events. Mike and his team were engaging, flexible and educated on the simulator.
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.
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!
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!
Our students and staff loved this event. It was very informative and students loved the simulation. Students talked about about how meaningful the message was and saw the damage that can occur through distracted driving.
I was so impressed. What you do will save the lives of many young people.
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.
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.
