Join Northern Healthy Connection Society in remembering and celebrating the people we have lost due to overdose from a toxic drug supply and other various ways people have been effected by drug related harms. We will have naloxone training and free kits, speeches, a memorial picture to sign the name of a love one you’ve loss, resources and snacks and coffee. This will be a safe, inclusive and non stigmatizing space to remember our loved ones, peers, people we support, and all people effected by these tragic circumstances

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.
