It's Bell Let's Talk Day

“Mental Health: Every Action Counts”, Wednesday is Bell Let's Talk Day

Last year, there were 145,442,699 interactions, which means well over $7-million was raised towards mental health initiatives.

In addition, women were more likely to report needing counselling and support group services, while men were more likely to report needing addiction services.

"Since we launched in 2010, we have partnered with more than 1,000 organizations providing mental health services throughout Canada, including hospitals, universities and other care and research organizations", said Bell MTS manager of communications Morgan Shipley.

Today is the day we at Bell continue the conversation in order to raise funds and awareness of mental health issues across the country.

So for the rest of the day, get texting, tweeting, talking, listening and, most importantly, supporting what's a very important cause!
