January 28, 2014

(Tuesday, January 21, 2014) – On January, 28, 2014, Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) National CEO, Peter Coleridge, will be available to speak to the media about the ways Canadians can improve and maintain their mental health as well the issues impacting people living with mental health conditions or illnesses.

The interview availability coincides with Bell Let’s Talk Day, a national initiative aimed at raising funds, increasing awareness and breaking down stigma about mental illnesses in communities across Canada.

“CMHA congratulates Bell for its continued commitment to change people’s behaviours and attitudes about mental health and reduce the stigma associated with mental illnesses,” said Coleridge. “The increased profile around mental health created by Bell Let’s Talk Day also gives CMHA an opportunity to share information and tools about maintaining and improving mental health, and the services and programs we provide for Canadians living with mental illnesses or mental health problems.”
