Bell Let's Talk Day raises awareness and money for mental health initiatives

"Safewards is an evidence-based best practice model of care with over 20 years of research behind it". My government has made mental health a priority, and we are working hard to support everyone in their journey toward mental wellness.

The Binghamton Devils organization participated in the Bell Lets Talk social media campaign to raise awareness of mental health and assist in donating to the cause.

"Bell Let's Talk is a great starting point", she said. "Growing and expanding our services at Sault Area Hospital will help provide the level of care that every member of our community deserves", said Teresa Martone, executive director, Sault Area Hospital Foundation.

Rarely interviewed about Bell's commitment to mental health (Samaritanmag has tried), in an early interview with The Globe & Mail in 2010, he told the newspaper, "What we've tried to do is come out and talk quite openly about it".

In 2015, Bell announced it would extend Bell Let's Talk for another 5 years.

For every tweet, retweet or post using the #BellLetsTalk, Bell will donate five cents to Canadian mental health programs across the country.

How will you support your employees' mental health today? "She was really supportive of seeing Bell take these actions, but also recognized that if what we do helps one Canadian, that's a venture worth pursuing from her perspective". He calls that a shame because they are the people who need the good will of society to improve their position. "And ultimately, it's to reduce the stigma around mental health".

The Toronto Maple Leafs head coach says it's important for parents to be aware of how their kids are feeling and not fear the stigma of mental illness.

Sulekha Sharma, second-year bachelor of nursing student and Student Engagement Leader for Student Services at the college, feels Let's Talk Day is more than just a one-day event because it opens doors for people to access resources, and encourages necessary conversations.
