Mental health is becoming a serious issue across the country. Everyday, 500,000 Canadians miss work because of some form of mental illness. Another twenty-two percent of us are affected by an anxiety or mood disorder, and one in five Canadians has experienced a form of mental illness in their lifetime.
On January 28th, Bell Let’s Talk Day hopes to change that – and all you have to do to help is pick up the phone. Bell will donate 5¢ to mental health initiatives for every text message sent and long distance call made through its service. Additionally, donations will also be made if you Tweet using #BellLetsTalk or if you share the Bell Let’s Talk image on Facebook.
