#CrazySocks4Docs Breakfast 2022
JOIN CRAZYSOCKS4DOCS FOUNDER, DR GEOFF TOOGOOD, ALONG WITH DR TAHNEE BRIDSON, FOUNDER OF HAND-N-HAND PEER SUPPORT FOR HEALTH WORKERS AND OTHER SPECIAL GUESTS!
The Crazysocks4docs movement came out of the responses that the founder Dr Geoff Toogood experienced when he happened to wear odd coloured socks to work. The talk behind his back was that he was failing again. In reality he was well, and his socks (apart from the last two odd socks that he was wearing that day) had all been eaten by his new puppy. Rather than start a discussion about whether he was ok, there was whispering behind the scenes. As a result of this experience, Geoff established CrazySocks4Docs Day as an attempt to address the stigma around mental health in doctors, and to make it ok for a Doctor not to be ok.
Dr Toogood (above) is joining the Adelaide event in person, as well Founder of Hand-n-Hand Peer Support service Dr Tahnee Bridson (right) for a 'fireside' chat.
JOIN US ONLINE!!
We thrilled to share that we are beaming this event out across Australia with a special registration rate for doctors outside of SA! So gather your team for a breakfast in your practice or workplace and enjoy the event from afar, and take photos of your crazy socks and enjoy the online community, through social media, all about reducing the stigma of mental health in doctors.
This year's panel focus is on how work practices and work places impact on doctors' health and wellbeing.
The Panel will be discussing the focus around how their organisations are striving to improve and structure their workplaces and practices that support positive working environments. Along with an understanding of how toxic work environments are negatively impacting doctors and as well health teams.
