UK Overdose Awareness & Naloxone Poster Campaign

Launched: April 2021

There is a new overdose awareness and naloxone poster campaign launching this week in the UK that features the faces of real community naloxone carriers.

For obvious reasons we’d love to see some photographs of these billboards in the wild so we’re hoping that some of you can post photos to instagram. We’ll be keeping an eye of the #naloxone and #naloxoneposter tags, so if you post something expect our editor to reach out to you.

Stop the deaths

This year the Scottish Drugs Forum  #StopTheDeaths campaign highlights the role we all have in recognising and intervening when a person overdoses.

Overdose is not a rare occurrence and the difference between an overdose and a fatal overdose depends upon the immediate actions of people present at the time. You could save a life by recognising an overdose.
