Every year on January 25 Bell Canada runs a campaign to bring more awareness to mental health issues. It’s called Bell Let’s Talk.
Bell will contribute 5 cents to mental health related initiatives for every text message sent, and mobile and long distance calls made by Bell and Bell Aliant customers, every tweet and Instagram post using #BellLetsTalk, Facebook video view and use of the Bell Let’s Talk geofilter on Snapchat. – Bell
Although the campaign raises money for mental health initiatives, it’s main purpose is to spread awareness of stigma with regards to mental health.
Do a quick search on social media for #BellLetsTalk to see what people are saying and sharing.
If you suffer from mental illness or know someone who does, take a moment to share something today. I’m not being paid to say this by Bell either, I just want to help end the mental health stigma. Don’t be afraid to speak up!
