Your Developing Brain Puts You In Danger

  • Car Accidents

    The leading cause of death in youth populations is car accidents. We can change this tragic fact by getting you informed about ways to work with your changing adolescent brain, not against it.

  • Knowledge is Power

    Knowing little about your brain and the changes it is undergoing from 12 to 25 puts you at risk especially while driving. Brain research can teach you strategies to manage this time of development.

  • Adolescent Brain

    Neuroscientists have discovered your developing brain is like a super-charged race car with the wheels of a bicycle. It's not your fault, but you need to keep safe during this time of neurological changes.
