19 Jul Crazy Socks for Docs
The Sugarman office showing up for hashtagcrazysocks4docs day in fine form.
Mental health difficulties affect the medical industry at notably higher levels than the general population – according to one Beyond Blue study, almost a fifth of doctors report having been diagnosed with/treated for depression in their lifetimes, and a quarter have reported having thoughts of suicide in the 12 months prior to data collection (Beyond Blue, 2013).
Our doctors shouldn’t be expected to provide the best care without receiving the same.
Crazy Socks for Docs is a movement dedicated to raising awareness for the mental health problems in the medical industry, as well as destigmatising the practice of asking for help.
