Statement / January 28, 2015 / Project number: 15-0034

“The Bell ‘Let’s Talk’ Day – taking place 28 January – is an opportunity to have an open, honest conversation about mental health. I am proud that we can be a constructive part of the national dialogue on this important issue and encourage you all to participate.

For every text, mobile call, and long distance call made by Bell and Bell Aliant customers; for every tweet using #BellLetsTalk and every Facebook share of the Bell Let's Talk image, Bell will donate 5 cents to support mental health initiatives across Canada.

Not just today, but all year long, let’s make the commitment to look out for one another. Let’s take the time — not only to ask good questions — but to truly listen to each other.

Talking about mental health is the first step towards making a positive change. The more we talk about it, the closer we come to ending the stigma and removing barriers to recovery. By having an open dialogue, we help to build greater understanding and acceptance.

If you are struggling, I urge you to reach out – through social media, to a friend or trusted colleague, or to your local CAF medical clinic.

You are not alone. Your Army family is here for you. All of Canada is behind you. We are Strong. Proud. Ready.”
