Clara Hughes and Bell team up for mental health awareness

Clara Hughes is teaming up again with Bell’s Let’s Talk Campaign to raise money for and awareness of mental illness in Canada.

I had the pleasure of hearing Clara speak at an announcement Bell was making in relation to their gift of $250,000 to the Streetohome Foundation as part of Covenant House Vancouver’s Semi-Independent Housing Program. She has battled serious depression in her life and is determined to help shed the stigma still associated with this mental illness.  I applaud her courage to speak out and to lend her name and energy to such an important cause.

In 2010, Bell announced the launch of an unprecedented multi-year charitable program dedicated to the promotion and support of mental health across Canada. Over the next several years, this multi-million dollar initiative will support a wide range of programs that will enhance awareness, understanding and treatment of mental illness and promote access to care and research across the country.

So if you are on the Bell network, please talk and text a lot on February 8th as Bell will donate 5 cents towards mental health programs for every call or text made that day.
