Bell Let’s Talk 2013: Join the conversation to support Canadian mental health!

Today is Bell Let's Talk Day. In 2010 Bell announced that it would be contributing $50 million to mental health related initiatives over the next five years. Talking about mental health is the first step to making a difference. Let's get the conversation started. Clara Hughes, only one of four people in history to win medals in both the summer and winter Olympic games is the spokesperson for Bell Let's Talk. She herself suffered from depression after winning her first two winter medals in Atlanta in 1996. Like the many before and after her, she suffered in silence for far too long. Looking back, she wishes she had sought help earlier. She hopes the campaign encourages people to speak out "I really believe that the more people that talk about this, the louder the voice collectively we're going to have and the impact is going to be just enormous." On March 14, Bell Let's Talk is going even further. Clara's Big Ride for Bell Let's Talk will be taking the talk on the road. She will be making 95 community stops covering 12,000 kms in 110 days. She'll be mobilizing, engaging and connecting with community's all over Canada. Let's all join the conversation TODAY and take the stigma out of mental health. Today, Bell will donate 5¢ more to mental health initiatives for every: - Text message sent - Mobile and long distance call made - Tweet using #BellLetsTalk - Facebook share of our Bell Let’s Talk image To learn more please visit Bell.ca/LetsTalk.
