In response to the growing need for Harm Reduction information and tools, Barton BIA,541 Eatery & Exchange, GALA Community Planning Team, Hamilton Urban Core Community Health Centre and Helping Hands Street Mission hosted an event on Saturday, June 17, 2023 at Powell Park.

The event was entitled “Harm Reduction Tools and Training for our Community”. The event provided an opportunity for a robust presentation and discussion about the Harm Reduction needs in the neighbourhood and across the City.

Harm Reduction Counselors from Hamilton Urban Core gave a presentation to those in attendance and provided Naloxone Training and information. Thanks to a donation for the event from Marchese Pharmacy, attendees left with Naloxone kits.

All those in attendance felt that the event provided a great opportunity to connect and discuss the growing need for more people in our communities to learn about Harm Reduction and have opportunities to receive Naloxone training.

Stay tuned for the next opportunity to learn more about Harm Reduction and receive Naloxone training in the Fall.
