Narcan® is a safe medication that can save lives by reversing opioid overdose effects. Learn with NYC DOHMH on how to combat this crisis!

About this event

Naloxone (Narcan®) is a safe medication that can save someone’s life by reversing the effects of an opioid overdose. It only works on opioids, such as heroin, prescription painkillers and fentanyl, but it is safe to use even if opioids are not present.

The COVID-19 public health emergency has made many New Yorkers’ lives more stressful. The pandemic has also exacerbated the opioid crisis for several folks within the LGBTQ+ communities. If you use drugs, increased stress can change your drug use routines, which may increase your risk of overdose.

Join The CCNY LGBTQ+ Student Center in partnership with NYC Department of Mental Health and Hygiene's (DOHMH) Chip Ko and Kaity Lloyed-Styles for a free Narcan training! This hybrid training will cover steps for responding to an opioid overdose with naloxone and will outline options for accessing an Overdose Response Kit in person or by mail.

THOSE THAT REGISTER IN ADVANCE WILL GET A FREE OVERDOSE RESPONSE KIT UPON TRAINING COMPLETION
