1S1G is a batyr campaign designed for Schools, Uni’s, sporting teams and the community. Teams and individuals are encouraged to wear the bright socks to start positive conversations around mental health, whilst visually promoting their willingness to smash the stigma. By wearing the socks you will be contributing to a movement of young people who are creating positive conversations around mental health and wellbeing.
What is One Sock One Goal?
- Organise a day at your school, university or sporting organisation to wear the socks to start positive conversations around mental health.
- Raise money to develop and expand the batyr educational programs so more
young people can hear first hand, the benefits of seeking help from a young person’s lived experience of mental illness.
- Post images of your 1S1G day to social media and hashtag #1S1G @batyraus to smash the stigma.
Where does the money go?
Funds raised will go directly to delivering batyr programs which use the personal stories of young people who have experienced and successfully managed mental ill health to educate other young people on the benefits of reaching out during difficult times.
