In September 2010, #BellLet’sTalk began a conversation – an advocacy program to promote Canada’s mental health education, research, awareness, and ending social stigma. At that time, most people were not talking about mental illness. The numbers though spoke volumes about the urgent need for action. Millions of Canadians, engaged in an open discussion about mental illness, offering new ideas and hope for those who struggle, with numbers growing every year. As a result, institutions and organizations large and small in every region received new funding for access, care and research #BellLet’sTalk governments and corporations that also joined the cause.
Bell’s total donation to mental health programs now stands at $100,695,763.75 with nearly $90 donated to fund mental health with the goal of creating a stigma-free nation.
How can we contribute to this cause?
