About International Overdose Awareness Day
Addictions and Mental Health Services HPE is collaborating with community partners for an event in Belleville's Market Square bringing awareness to addictions and mental health resources. A moment of silence will be held to remember those who have died and acknowledge the grief of family and friends left behind. A highlight of Belleville’s event is the unveiling of a commissioned art piece by local artist Sarah Winn, which visually represents the impact of stigma and the importance of support. The commission was made possible through a City of Belleville Arts and Culture Grant that was secured by AMHS-HPE.
