Held on 31 August each year, it is a day to remember and support families and friends who have loved and lost people to overdose, and those with a permanent injury as a result of overdose.

It’s also an opportunity to raise awareness of overdose, reduce stigma and highlight the importance of prevention.

This year’s theme, “Recognising those people who go unseen”, honours the people whose lives have been impacted by overdose.

This includes family and friends grieving the loss of a loved one, workers who show compassion and strength and continue to advocate for individuals and overdose prevention, and first responders who assume the role of lifesaver by responding to an opioid overdose.
