Event description

Description

Hidden in Plain Sight is a free community initiative to help educate parents on possible signs of drug and alcohol use by teens. A teenager’s bedroom is replicated to allow parents to “snoop” around to find indicators of drug use and hiding spots.

The Teens Care Too coalition is comprised of Hanover County high school students dedicated to educating their peers and parents about the dangers of substance use. Heather Johnson, Adolescent Development Specialist with the Hanover Community Services Board serves as one of the group’s advisors. Parents in our community are often told to watch for warning signs that their teen might be using tobacco, alcohol or other drugs, but sometimes those signs are hard to see, even when they are right in front of you. Our teens know what’s going on. They brought Hidden in Plain Sight to our community because they wanted a way to help parents see the indicators of use so they can get their child help. We are so thankful for the Wal-Mart Foundation for awarding us a grant to help fund the project and for our community partners who help make this project possible.

Hanover Cares is a coalition of concerned citizens who raise awareness of substance abuse issues and work towards reducing substance use among underage youth. Hanover Cares is honored to partner with the Hanover County Sheriff’s Office, Hanover Community Services Board, and Hanover County Public Schools for this eye-opening prevention education event for parents.

Because of the sensitive nature of Hidden in Plain Sight, this event is for adults only.

There is no cost to attend the event, however registration is required. For more information contact Octavia Marsh, Executive Director of Hanover Cares at 804-564-6119 or info@hanover-cares.org.
