January 29 is Bell Let’s Talk Day

Every year in January, Bell Let’s Talk Day encourages Canadians to talk openly about mental health, in a nation-wide initiative promoting mental health education, awareness, and funding.

Every day is an opportunity to talk about mental health, support friends and family, and create spaces where people can feel safe, respected, and heard.

You are not alone and there is support in your community. If you or someone you know needs support, reach out to a trusted friend, family member, teacher, counsellor or Elder. Free, confidential mental health and addictions support is available at your local health centre.

For anonymous support, contact:
