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!
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.
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.
The students took the experience seriously. While in the simulator, they tried their hardest to avoid obstacles and saw firsthand the effects of distractions. They also enjoyed watching their fellow students spectacularly mess up.
Our students had very positive feedback regarding your team’s efforts. It was extremely rewarding to all.
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!
I had a very very pleasant experience with the staff from Peers. The augmented reality really gave our students a great experience to be behind the wheel and see the effects of driving while distracted, whether it was a phone or others talking and commenting. I definitely enjoyed the experience and I know the students did as well.
I was so impressed. What you do will save the lives of many young people.
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.
