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 filter.
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.
Many youth living on the streets of Vancouver experience mental health concerns that are often left undiagnosed including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Depression, Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, and Borderline Personality Disorder. Covenant House Vancouver is dedicated to helping youth get access to care and helping to end the stigma that surrounds mental illness.
