On August 31st, in Lakeport’s Library Park, Hope Rising-SafeRx will be hosting Lake Counties International Overdose Awareness Day. Representatives from Lake County Behavioral Health and Lake County Tribal Health, among others will be tabling and providing information, resources, and connections to services. SafeRx will be providing Narcan trainings and education on the overdose crisis within Lake County. All community members are encouraged to come and participate in creating “headstones” for loved ones who have lost their lives to overdose. Materials such as poster boards and paint will be provided to create these headstones to pay tribute to the lives lost, which gives a visual aid to the amount of overdoses this county has faced.
