Odd Socks Day
Friday 8 October 2021
What is Odd Socks Day?
Reducing the stigma of mental ill-health and raising awareness of this serious issue, while having some fun, is what Odd Socks Day is all about!
We want to see everyone openly discuss mental ill-health issues, just as you would with a physical injury or any other health issue. One in five Australians aged 16-85 experience mental ill-health in any year.
When you wear odd socks you’ll be helping GROW raise awareness of mental health issues and help to stamp out the stigma around mental ill-health. By wearing a pair of Odd Socks you’re on your way to starting the conversation about mental wellbeing.
Where can I buy some odd socks?
We’ve got something new planned for 2021! What this space!
