Join us in a Talking Circle about the opioid crisis and what we can do to respond. After the circle is complete we will have training on how to use Naloxone to reverse the effects of an overdose.
Naloxone is a medication that quickly reverses the effects of an overdose from opioids such as heroin, methadone, fentanyl and morphine. It is available in BC without a prescription and often given as an injection into a muscle. The training takes less than 30 minutes, and you leave with a kit. Naloxone is Harm Deduction that can save a person’s life. We as Indigenous women are the backbone of our community and need to be able to look after our families.

First Response is a lower barrier Outreach team for youth in the Fraser Valley, that was designed to be the First Response to the opioid Crisis in Surrey for youth. Kyla Dawn and Jayme Mellis are one part of First Response team. Kyla is a Tsilhqot’in and Secwepemc woman, and am a part of the Raven clan. I was raised on my traditional lands up north, currently living and working on the unceded Coast Salish Territories; the traditional territories of the Semiahmoo, Katzie, Kwikwetlem, Kwantlen, Qayqayt and Tsawwassen First Nations. Jayme is a English, Irish, and Scotland and lives on unceded Coast Salish Territories.
