We are hosting a private event for our residents and Mission Australia support staff who work on-site and at neighbouring Roma House. The event will consist of representatives from QuIHN coming and speaking to us about harm reduction practices, including a demonstration on how to use naloxone. This will be followed by a BBQ for all attendees. In the week leading up to the event, we have had IOAD posters up throughout the building, as well as a fixed canvas for residents to paint on. We are providing goody bags to our residents, consisting of various harm reduction paraphernalia including hand sanitiser, ADIS brochures, chewing gum, pens and notebooks, puzzle books and condoms.

The overdose epidemic is everyone's problem, but it's being left to a small group to step up.

Do your part and support these unrecognised responders by pushing for change today.
