On January 28, 2014, Bell will hold the fourth annual Bell Let’s Talk Day and CMHA is encouraging Canadians across the country to text, call and tweet in support of this important awareness campaign. As in previous years, Bell Let’s Talk encourages people to “start the conversation” about mental health with friends, family and co-workers, recognizing that simply talking makes a significant impact in breaking down the stigma attached to mental illness.
In 2013, over 96 million texts and calls were made resulting in $4.8 million raised for mental health initiatives across the country.
Once again this year, six-time Olympian Clara Hughes will be Bell’s spokesperson. Joining Clara will be composer and performer Stefie Shock, actor-comedian Michel Mpambara and award-winning journalist Seamus O’Regan.
Help CMHA support Bell Let’s Talk Day
CMHA has identified the elimination of stigma and the reduction of discrimination experienced by people with mental illness as one of its top priorities. Please help CMHA increase the volume and frequency of conversations about mental health in communities across the country.
