International Overdose Awareness Day aims to raise awareness of overdose, reduce the stigma of drug-related deaths and remember those who have died or suffered permanent injury due to drug overdose. It is also an opportunity to stimulate discussion about evidence-based overdose prevention and drug policy.

This day offers all who have been affected by overdose a chance to publicly mourn and help the wider community learn about drug overdose. More details about International Overdose Awareness Day are available at

Please RSVP by August 22nd (on Facebook or Eventbrite) for catering preparations and email Emma Rafferty or Matthew Corbett on or for any dietary requirements or if you have any questions about the event. You can also call SHARC reception on 03 95731700
