Crazy Socks 4 Docs June 1 2018
If you were at Victoria Point Surgery last Friday you may have noticed something unusual!
Our staff were participating in Crazy Socks 4 Drs. On June 1 Medical professionals were encouraged to wear loud, crazy and outrageous socks as part of the mental health of Drs and health practitioners everywhere and provide support for those experiencing stress and mental health issues.
Research shows that doctors are at a higher risk of suicide, suicidal thinking and psychological distress. Doctors need to look after each other so we can look after you!
If you are experiencing struggles with your own mental health please have a conversation with your GP and those around you.
