Bell Let's Talk having positive impact in C-K

Share

In honour of Bell Let's Talk Day, activities were held all day on Wednesday, the event including prizes, games, Bell Let's Talk swag, a photo booth and T-shirt designing activities, among other activities.

All you need to do is watch it and Bell will donate 5¢ to mental health initiatives.

Let's Talk Day was a chance to help shed some light on any stigmas regarding mental health they might have not been aware of.

Bell will also donate 5¢ to mental health initiatives for every view on their official campaign video.

Rarely interviewed about Bell's commitment to mental health (Samaritanmag has tried), in an early interview with The Globe & Mail in 2010, he told the newspaper, "What we've tried to do is come out and talk quite openly about it. There are wait times for some services but anybody in immediate need can get help immediately".

It's easy to be part of the Bell Let's Talk Day conversation all day long and across multiple communications platforms.

Nationally recognized, on January 30 of every year, Bell Canada will donate towards Canadian mental health initiatives by contributing five cents for every applicable text, call, tweet, social media video view and use of their Facebook frame or Snapchat filter, as stated on their website. The CCH's child and youth mental health services donated door prizes, snacks and pizza. "There's actually a lot in Medicine Hat to provide assistance to people in a crisis, or if you just need to talk to somebody".

"Bell Let's Talk is a great starting point", she said. High-profile partners in this year's Let's Talk campaign include sports teams like the Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Raptors, Ottawa Senators and Montreal Canadiens, film organizations like the Toronto International Film Festival, Hot Docs and Cineplex, music organizations like Festival d'été de Québec, Osheaga and Spotify, and social media services like Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, one in five Canadians will experience a mental health problem.

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.
