Mental Health International's 12 Gifts for Christmas - 15th Annual Edition
December 4, 2014


Wear Your Red Socks!

Bill's red socks theme has picked up traction through Delta Hotels' tremendous commitment to mental health in the workplace across their hotel system in Canada. Bill sits on their advisory committee and has taped a message for their mental health week program. Have a look at this promo of their program.













Also, Bill has heard from mental health advocates in the UK who are donning red socks having seen his YOU TUBE VIDEOS promoting the red socks as a mark of support for mental health in the workplace.
