31st August 2021 is International Overdose Awareness day. This day is an annual, global event about raising awareness on overdose - what it is, the signs of an overdose, and how to respond.
It’s about educating people in order to reduce the stigma surrounding drug-related deaths.
And it’s also about acknowledging the grief of the families and friends who have lost a loved one relating to substance use.
To help bring light to this subject and highlight the struggles that people with addiction live with YFCC are hosting a screening of
“WILD BUTTERFLY” The Claire Murray Story
Wild Butterfly is a dramatised documentary that explores childhood trauma and its relationship to ongoing mental health issues and drug use. It uncovers the hidden story behind a family’s tragic circumstances and opens our eyes to the impacts of social injustices and prejudices that could befall anyone.
The screening will be held at Reading Cinema in Devonport at 6:30pm on the 31st August 2021.
