Event Details:

The PEERs are hosting National Fentanyl Awareness Day on May 7th, 2024 in White Plaza. 

National Fentanyl Awareness day was started in 2022 to recognize the growing risks that fentanyl poses to our communities. The PEERs have organized this event to share the many ways we can reduce those risks and keep our communities safe. 

This year Fentanyl Awareness Day is part of a larger effort to recognize Mental Health Awareness Month in May, and to draw attention to the intersection of substance use and mental health.

Fentanyl Awareness Day is co-sponsored by a number of student organizations doing work to combat the opioid epidemic including ChemX, REACH Lab, Cardinal Recovery as well as professional staff (CAPS). There will be tables with giveaways including a raffle for one of 5 Fentanyl Awareness Day Owala bottles, harm reduction resources including free testing kits and free Narcan, and information about campus community resources such as Cardinal Recovery. PEERs will also be facilitating a Narcan training to teach participants how to reverse an opioid overdose. 

  • Tabling begins at 11:00AM and ends at 1:30PM. The Narcan training will begin promptly at 12:00PM on the lawn in front of the claw, and all participants will receive free Narcan afterwards.

Fentanyl Awareness Day is open to all students, faculty, staff, and Stanford affiliates. We hope to see you there!
