International Family Drug Support Day
24 February 2022 - Online event

Due to the impact of COVID-19, there will be no face-to-face events in Australia this year.
FDS will present the event online to mark International Family Drug Support Day on 24 February 2022.

International FDS day first started in 2016 to draw attention to the importance of families affected by alcohol and/or drugs, including the benefits of supporting families. When families are given education, awareness and tips on coping and keeping safe, the outcome for everyone is improved.

From small beginnings it grew to international events in most Australian major cities and several overseas. The theme for 2022 IFDSD event is 'Voices to be Heard'. FDS are focusing on the results of our 'Voices to be Heard' survey which collected information on the views of families around drug policy. The results will be presented to Federal and State governments on 24 February 2022.

"Any family anywhere, regardless of background, economic and other circumstances can be affected by drugs. We hope this annual event will reach members of the community and change some of the negative attitudes that exist." Tony Trimingham, Founder and CEO of Family Drug Support.
