Eli Brown has made it his mission to change the discussion about mental health, especially when it comes to youth. He’s been very open about his personal experiences with anxiety, depression and substance abuse and how—and when—he got help.

Now, his clothing company Shine the Light On helps further the discussion and raises money for mental health initiatives. Their t-shirts are designed to bring awareness to social issues around mental health that affect youth and a portion of all sales go towards various mental health initiatives.

Watch the video clip above to learn more about Eli’s story and how his company is helping create change.

It’s time we started talking openly about our mental health. Join the conversation on Bell Let’s Talk Day, January 30, and help end the stigma around mental illness. For every text message (not iMessage) sent and mobile or long-distance call made by Bell Canada, Bell Aliant and Bell MTS customers, Bell will donate five cents to Canadian mental health initiatives. The same goes for anyone sending a tweet using #BellLetsTalk, watching the Bell Let’s Talk Day video on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or Snapchat, or using the Bell Let’s Talk Facebook frame or Snapchat filter. But talking about it is just the first step: Visit letstalk.bell.ca for more ways you can effect change and build awareness around mental health.
