Every year, thousands of people around the world take part in International Overdose Awareness Day on 31 August.
International Overdose Awareness Day (IOAD) is about remembering the loved ones we have lost and acknowledging the grief of family and friends left behind. There are many ways you can participate on the day and throughout the whole year.
This year consider lighting a monument or civic building purple to raise awareness.
