International Overdose Awareness Day: Coming Together (Fort St. James)

  • This event has passed.

August 31, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Nurses from the Nak’azdli Health Center have partnered with Nak’azdli Wellness, Northern Health Public Health Nursing, Community Paramedics, The Key, Mental Health & Addiction Services along with community members to conduct a community event that will focus on the cause: to increase awareness of overdose and to acknowledge the grief for those who have been affected by overdose in some way.

With the provincial overdose emergency, we feel this is a critical time to educate community. We hope to make further partnerships with those who are at higher risk of overdose or who know those who may be at high risk of overdose, e.g. those living in our downtown core, family/friends/community members.

It has been so rewarding to go from an idea to working with such a great group of dedicated people from so many different organizations towards a very fun and rewarding project. Several extremely engaged PVN members expressed interest in being part of piloting a patient virtual care peer support system. I am confident that this is the beginning of many more exciting collaborations!
