Who We Are

The Crazysocks4docs Trust Foundation was established to fulfil Geoff Toogood’s vision of breaking down the stigma around mental health issues in doctors and health professionals. Crazysocks4docs is registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission, and is endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office as a deductible gift recipient. Crazysocks4docs is governed by a well-qualified and experienced board of directors.

Crazysocks4docs acknowledges that the Land on which our office is located has deep connections to peoples and cultures across the Eastern Kulin Nation. As such we acknowledge the Traditional Owners of this area, the Boonwurrung and the Wurundjeri Peoples, and pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging. As an organisation with national reach, we extend our respect to all Elders and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across Australia.
