Mental health affects many Canadians and on Bell Let’s Talk Day, everyone is encouraged to stop the stigma and raise awareness towards mental health issues by talking and sharing their thoughts.
We often hear from experts about mental health and why it’s so important that we know better so we can do better, and Your Morning’s Anne-Marie Mediwake knows just how critical this conversation is. She recently met with Canadians sto discuss their own experiences with mental health and now she’s sharing their incredible stories.
In Their Own Words: A Bell Let’s Talk Day Special follows the stories of several Canadians, including the head coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Mike Babcock. During their conversation, Babcock talks about why it’s so important to pull back the curtain on mental health in the sports community.
The special will be simulcast on Twitter, CTV.ca, and the CTV app as part of the three-hour Bell Let’s Talk Live interactive special, which will stream around the world from 6:45 p.m. to 10 p.m. ET and will feature interviews with medical experts, political leaders, celebrities, and other notable guests.
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.
