International Overdose Awareness Day (31 August)

Endoverdose Stacked Black MediumEach year on August 31st, people around the world remember those who have been lost to (or harmed by) overdose, raise awareness about overdose risks and advocate for change to prevent future harm.

We will be holding a public event at our Coburg site on the 31st (2.00-3.30pm) to remember those individuals and families affected by overdose, discuss the growing risks associated with opioids in Victoria and advocate for the establishment of a pilot Medically Supervised Injecting Centre in Richmond.

We invite anyone who has used our services, family members or interested members of the public to join us for the event and for afternoon tea.
