3rd Annual World’s Largest Overdose Prevention Training

29 August @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

In 2016 there were 1808 overdose deaths in Australia many of which were attributed to prescription drugs.  Overdose can happen to anyone.

Join us at Port Melbourne Town hall for a wonderful FREE event to learn how to recognise and possibly prevent a fatal overdose for someone you love.

In a practical training delivered by some of the best in the business, you will learn the signs & symptoms of overdose before getting very ‘hands on’ with the opportunity to practice overdose reversal techniques.

This event is designed for anyone that may come into contact with problematic drug use, whether that be illicit or prescription drugs.

Knowledge is power so we look forward to seeing you there!

*In honour of International Overdose Awareness Day this event is being hosted by 11 concerned community organisations including:
The First Step Program, Windana, StarHealth Penington Institute, Launch Housing, St Kilda Gatehouse, The Salvation Army Australia, Whitelion, The Alfred, City Of Port Phillip
