Overdose touches people and communities in many ways.

Please join us for Morning Tea as we remember those lost to overdose and those loved ones left behind. There will be local services who will be supporting the community with information and education around substance use and where you can get help.

International Overdose Awareness Day 2023, “Recognising those people who go unseen,” we honour the people whose lives have been altered by overdose. They are the family and friends grieving the loss of a loved one; workers in healthcare and support services extending strength and compassion; or spontaneous first responders who selflessly assume the role of lifesaver.

We would like to say to these people: #weseeyou. Theirs are the voices we should amplify, and their strength and experience should be held up as examples to us all. Too often, however, they are left to bear the burden of this crisis alone and in silence.


Overdose affects everyone. From grieving families to spontaneous first responders, the impacts of overdose are far-reaching and fall indiscriminately.

Sign up to the International Overdose Awareness Day newsletter and become part of the global movement to end overdose.
