SASMOA is proud to be a Principal Partner of the 2020 #CrazySocks4Docs Campaign! Just like any person doctors can experience the full range of mental health issues - anxiety, depression, burnout, fear, anger and more. CrazySocks4Docs aims to raise awareness of mental health issues experienced by doctors and make it OK to talk about them. It is also an opportunity to raise some funds this year for doctor-specific mental health research projects, in conjunction with the Breakthrough Mental Health Research Foundation. 

WE FIGHT FOR BETTER WORKING CONDITIONS FOR SALARIED DOCTORS
