Today, January 29th, is Bell Let’s Talk Day and the theme for this year is #EveryActionCounts. To recognize this day, we are creating conversations within the Stella’s Place community, and sharing answers to the following questions.

  • What are actions you take to care for your own Mental health?
  • What are actions you take to help others?
  • What are some actions that we can take to better offer Mental health services?
  • Can you think of an action that made a difference in your life?

 

Take a look at some of the answers and feel free to send us your own to join in on the discussion!

 

For the past 10 years on this day, Bell has been supporting mental health initiatives in Canada by contributing 5¢ for every applicable text, call, tweet, social media video view and use of the official Facebook frame or Snapchat filter.

People from all across Canada are jumping in on the discussion on how to battle the stigma around mental health and to raise funds.

In a recent article in The Globe & Mail, Lindsey Lowy shares her personal story, talks openly about her daughters struggle with depression and touches on how #BellLetsTalk Day has significance for her family.

But as much as I admire its success, the campaign is not enough. Youth mental health is still underfunded. Kids are still not getting the help they need, and parents are still crying out of despair and frustration." "lindsey Lowy, Director of Consumer Marketing at the Globe"
