"What a remarkable day for mental health!"
The Bell Let's Talk initiative aims to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health challenges by engaging in open conversations and treating those suffering from mental health issues as being ill, not weak. It's been an incredible outpouring of support for those who struggle with mental illness over the last eight years, and we're now ready to break a billion total messages. 24/7. We can connect you with many different services or just be a listening ear.
"I think everyone is going through something and the more we talk about it, the more people are OK with letting others know how they feel so that they can become better".
The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) recognizes that one in five Canadians will suffer from a mental illness at some point in their lives.
