International Family Drug Support Day 2018

 

Overview

The International Family Drug Support Day theme for 2018 is Support the family – improve the outcome.

The International Family Drug Support Day is set on the date of the passing of Damien Trimingham, from a drug related overdose. The day has become an annual event to highlight the need for families to not only be recognised and heard but to be supported and encouraged to speak about their concerns and their needs.

The International Day is also targeting governments to ensure families are able to access the support they need, and to encourage families to take that step and seek that support. The International Day also seeks to reduce the stigma and discrimination for families and drug users and promote harm reduction strategies.

A number of events are being held across Australia. See link below for more information.
