Parents: Learn what to watch for to keep teens safe

top secret bedroom

Parents and other caring adults are invited to Stillwater Area High School to attend The Top Secret Project: an interactive traveling exhibit of a makeshift teenager’s bedroom followed by a ninety minute presentation.

This unique program is designed to help parents recognize unfamiliar hazards of teenagers related to drug and alcohol use, disordered eating, self-harm, and criminal activity that can often be found in plain sight. Featuring a makeshift teen’s bedroom, participants learn to identify items that when seen through an educated lens, could be a signal that there’s a problem. Following the exhibit, the presentation involves a discussion on what to do if you or someone you know is concerned and provides important resources for young people and families.

The Top Secret Project is committed to helping adults uncover the mysteries in the lives of teens, provide tools and resources to foster safe environments, and encourage ongoing dialogues.
