The Mental Health & Recovery Board will be holding an event at the Gazebo in downtown Kent on Franklin Ave. from 4-6pm to honor and remember loved ones who have overdosed. Naloxone and hygiene products will be distributed as well as other treatment and recovery resources.

Other community organizations, Townhall II, AxessPointe, Medmark, and University Hospitals Portage will be there as well to help raise awareness and fight the stigma surrounding the disease of addiction.

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.
