Huge thanks to everyone who was part of the South Island MSA’s first Socks4Docs day! We got lots of great photos sent our way, and heard that many good conversations around physician mental health were triggered.
If you or someone you know could do with a mental health boost, there are many ways to access support:
- The Greater Victoria Physician Peer Support program has trained and compassionate physicians from across our region ready to listen! This is free and confidential.
- The Physician Health Program is available 24/7 and is confidential. Call to access help for yourself, or to let them know about a colleague that you’re worried about. 1-800-663-6729
While our next ‘official’ Socks4Docs day will be on Friday, June 7, 2024, don’t be afraid to wear mismatched socks more often!
