Decrease Stigma in our Community – Opioid Overdoses

Overdose Awareness Poster

Opioid overdoses claimed the lives of at least 2, 458 Canadians last year. Two people die every day in Ontario because of this issue. The Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit and the Chatham-Kent Drug Awareness Council invite you to join us on Thursday, August 31st for International Overdose Awareness Day. A community memorial event will be taking place from 7:00pm-9:00pm at Blythe Park and Mud Creek Recreational Trail on Tweedsmuir Ave. W in Chatham. Help us raise awareness about the opioid overdose crisis and decrease stigma in our community. For more information go to the event page or call 519.355.1071 ext. 5719.
