Please join us for Overdose Awareness Day at the Hamilton Urban Core Community Health Centre. There is an overwhelming need to bring awareness to the growing number of deaths due to the Opioid Crisis we are facing worldwide, as well as here in Hamilton. Through knowledge exchange and information sharing every community member has a part to play and can be the “right door”at the “right time” for our neighbours, friends and family and community members to know that they are not alone. With proper training and knowledge, everyone can be prepared with Naloxone in the event they face an Overdose situation. The one-day event will feature Naloxone training, a truth hearing on Addictions and Mental Health, knowledge exchange from community partners, local politicians and community leaders and good food. It is a day dedicated to remembering without stigma the people who have died, and to acknowledge the grief of the family and friends left behind. It is a time to remember and a the time to act. Come learn about what you can do!
