Taking Positive Action
Bell Let’s Talk launched in 2010 with a focus on building awareness, acceptance and action in mental health. Since then Canadians have taken the conversation around mental health to remarkable heights, making it clear that mental health matters.
In a recent survey conducted by Nielsen Consumer Insights in 2019, 84% of Canadians now say they are comfortable speaking with others about mental health, compared to only 42% in 2012. It’s time to build on that increased awareness and acceptance and put a greater focus on action to create positive change in our schools, workplaces, and communities.
Through the 2020 Bell Let’s Talk Day campaign, we are featuring 8 outstanding Canadian organizations taking action by providing supports and services to make a difference for people experiencing mental health challenges.
I feel it is very important to not just talk but to also gain the skills needed and the confidence to take charge of our own mental health, learning more than self care, using learned tools to manage anxiety, accessing these tools through talk, through therapy, through art, through self expression. I hope today you will get a chance to have a conversation with someone you know and trust to learn more about or share about your own mental health.
Thank you for joining me for a cup of tea and a thank you to Bell for helping bring Mental Health Awareness and Mental Wellness to a global scale.
