Have an odd day

MENTAL HEALTH WEEK 8-15 OCTOBER 2016

SOX appeal will go through the roof as West Australians everywhere pull on odd socks for Odd Sock Day, October  7 October as part of Mental Health Week.

Money raised by wearing clashing socks goes to Grow’s free mental health programs which have been helping adults and at-risk youths for close to 60 years.

“Grow has quietly and profoundly helped thousands of Australians over the last six decades get back on their feet, get back to work, heal their relationships and give them hope,” CEO Clare Guilfoyle says.

With almost half the population expected to experience some form of mental illness during their life, the campaign is also a call to end the stigma around mental health.

“[The] impact of poor mental health will affect every family, community and workplace,” Ms Guilfoyle says.
