To register:

This event will include a Hidden in Plain Sight exhibit, which will be presented by The Brockton Mayor’s Opioid Overdose Prevention Coalition.   Adults are encouraged to explore and interact with the display designed to resemble a teenager’s bedroom. Throughout the exhibit are items that may indicate a teenager is involved in some high-risk behavior such as substance abuse, underage drinking, eating disorders, sexual activity and more. Participants will be enlightened, educated and astonished. There is no charge to attend the program.

NotMYkid is a 45 minute drug awareness presentation for parents of middle schools students, with prevention in mind. The presentation will guide you through how to have a conversation with your child about drugs.  This presentation is geared toward the educational needs of all parents which is why we call it notMYkid, as all kids are affected by drugs and alcohol. Please sign up to learn the current trends, slang that children are using, and other statistics you should be aware of.  One crucial component of this program is education of parents in locking up prescription medicines to help prevent opioid addictions on the South Shore.

Registration open to ALL parents, primarily geared toward parents/guardians/care takers of middle and high school children.  Children will NOT be allowed to attend. Babysitting available upon request, must email: with age(s) of children.

Must pre-register to attend.
