Bell Let’s Talk – January 28th

Let's talk

5 simple ways to help end the stigma surrounding mental health:

While 1 in 5 Canadians will experience mental illness at some point in their lives, the lingering stigma means 2 in 3 will struggle in silence fearing judgment and rejection. This year’s Bell Let’s Talk’s campaign focuses on 5 simple ways we can all help end the stigma around mental
illness:
  • Language matters – pay attention to the words you use about mental illness
  • Educate yourself – learn, know and talk more, understand the signs
  • Be kind – small acts of kindness speak a lot
  • Listen and ask – sometimes it’s best to just listen
  • Talk about it – start a dialogue, break the silence

Please go to the link below for more information on joining the conversation.
