3rd Annual World’s Largest Overdose Prevention Training – August 29th



In honour of International Overdose Awareness Day, First Step would like to cordially invite you to the 3rd Annual World’s Largest Overdose Prevention Training to be held at Port Melbourne Town Hall on Thursday August 29th at 6pm.   

In 2016 there were 2177 deaths in Australia attributed to overdose.  Of these more than 1700 were found to be accidental.  11 Community organisations from St.Kilda and surrounds join forces each year to bring awareness to these unnecessary deaths and to help equip our community with the knowledge and skills to prevent them.  

Please help us to spread the word about this event, even better join us at Port Melbourne Town Hall on August 29th to learn how you could save a life. 

Key points about the event are as follows:

  • It’s free
  • It’s designed to equip one with the knowledge to identify an overdose and the skills to respond
  • A very hands on training suitable for anyone that might be first on the scene of an overdose: parents, grandparents, siblings, outreach workers, carers, friends, users etc.  Overdose does not discriminate!
  • FREE but reservations essential: trybooking.com/BELGX
  • Places are limited so please book fast
