1 June: Odd socks for Docs

1 June is #CrazySocks4Docs day. Image: Grow
Doctor wellbeing and doctor suicides are uncomfortable topics for many of us. We are trained to diagnose, treat and stabilise patients. We are uncomfortable about the touchy-feely stuff, but it is the elephant in the room. In the Beyond Blue survey of Australian doctors, 1 in 5 were diagnosed with depression, 1 in 4 has had suicidal thoughts, and 1 in 50 had attempted suicide.

This 1 June, congratulate anyone wearing odd socks to highlight the need for health care workers to care for each other’s health. But not just for Docs. This day is for nurses, pharmacists, social workers, physios, psychologists, dietitians, speech pathologists, medical students, veterinarians and all other specialties that work in the healthcare industry.
