Overdose Awareness Day, August 31

Well, someone's been busy here at headspace Hobart folding cranes for International Overdose Awareness Day on August 31.

Drug overdose continues to impact Tasmanians of all backgrounds- with more than one person lost every week to overdose in Tasmania.

Senbazuru is the Japanese art of folding 1,000 paper cranes. It is said that if you fold 1,000 paper cranes and make a wish, it will come true.

The Alcohol, Tobacco and other Drugs Council (ATDC) of Tasmania put the callout to members of the Tasmanian community to help fold origami cranes to raise awareness and remember Tasmanians lost to overdose.
