Sock it to Mental Illness

We are on a mission to raise awareness of youth mental health.

One in four young people between the ages of 15 – 24 will experience a mental health problem in any 12-month period. 75% of mental illnesses first occur in people aged 15 to 24, yet . . . only one in four young people with mental health problems receive professional help. This is why Read The Play are raising awareness of youth mental health and guiding them to the relevant support services.

What is Read the Play?

Read the Play is a mental health literacy program for junior members of sporting clubs. The program is designed to break down the stigma around mental illness. Read the Play aims to increase knowledge and awareness about mental health problems, increase knowledge about local support services & increase confidence and skills in guiding our youth to relevant support services. Read The Play is connected to the Geelong Cats as a part of their Cats in Community umbrella.

Sock it to Mental Illness

“Sock it to Mental Illness” is a fundraising and awareness campaign promoting youth mental health. We will be selling a limited number of unisex socks to further raise awareness of youth mental health with all the proceeds going directly to the Read The Play program. So bring your athletic performance to the next level, get some socks and join Read the Play ambassador Danielle Higgins in supporting a great organisation and an even bigger cause in raising awareness of youth mental health.

The Socks

This year, Read The Play have partnered with Steigen to produce the Read The Play athletic sock. Athletic socks are an accessory for comfort – the less you feel them the better. Steigen athletic socks are super thin, made of nylon lycra and do not hold a lot of moisture like other socks. They are designed to create an environment in which blisters are less likely to form and are a superior sock which fits the foot like a second skin.
