Bell’s funding commitment for mental health, including the company’s donations based on Bell Let’s Talk engagement and its original $50-million donation to launch the initiative, is now $93,423,628.80 and expected to surpass $100 million on January 30.
One of the biggest hurdles for anyone living with a mental health problem or illness is overcoming the stigma attached. The annual Bell Let’s Talk awareness campaign aims to fight stigma by promoting awareness and understanding.
The MHCC believes talking is the best way to start breaking down the barriers associated with mental illness. On Bell Let’s Talk Day, join the conversation on Twitter: @MHCC_
