January 30th is Bell Let’s Talk Day. For every text message sent by Bell Canada, Bell Aliant and Bell MTS customers, Bell will donate 5 cents toward mental health initiatives. Even if you are not a Bell customer, there are other ways to help.
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.
