It’s Bell Let’s Talk Day – Join the conversation and help end the stigma around Mental Illness!

Back to Blog Listing Page | | January 31, 2018

Help end the stigma around mental illness. It’s easier than you think! Today, Bell will donate more towards mental health initiatives in Canada, by contributing 5¢ for every applicable text, call, tweet, social media video view and use of their Facebook frame or Snapchat geofilter.

It’s a fact, one in five Canadians will suffer from mental illness at some point in their lifetime. One of the biggest hurdles for anyone suffering from mental illness is overcoming the stigma. It is the number one reason why two-thirds of those living with a mental illness do not seek help. Know the facts, be kind, be a good listener and friend. Be part of the conversation to eliminate stigma once and for all.

Mental health continues to be a major issue with homeless youth; Covenant House Vancouver is dedicated to helping youth get access to care and helping to end the stigma that surrounds mental illness. We are excited to once again participate in Bell Let’s Talk day and be part of the conversation.
