Today is a flagship day for employee mental health - Bell Let's Talk. We are here for you when you need us.

"Bell Let's Talk Day has quickly grown into the biggest conversation about mental health anywhere and we hope you'll join in to let those who struggle know they've got your support".

Last fall, Red Deer Public Schools launched its Valuing Mental Health initiative after recognizing mental health and wellness had become a growing issue for students, staff and families in the community.

Deputy Premier, Minister of Health and Long-term Care, and Newmarket-Aurora MPP Christine Elliott said in a statement, "On Bell Let's Talk Day, we are reminded that we must take mental health as seriously as any health issue, because mental health is health".

Sault Area Hospital Foundation is pleased to receive a $10,000 grant from the Bell Let's Talk Community Fund to support the Safewards Program at Sault Area Hospital. "Safewards encourages active communication so that patients are heard and understood in an environment of trust", said Heather Hickey, director, Collaborative Practice and Mental Health and Addictions, Sault Area Hospital.

"It's important to be open about the struggle that we as individuals face", said LeRoy Berndt, Executive Director of the Canadian Mental Health Association's Regina branch. High-profile partners in this year's Let's Talk campaign include sports teams like the Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Raptors, Ottawa Senators and Montreal Canadiens, film organizations like the Toronto International Film Festival, Hot Docs and Cineplex, music organizations like Festival d'été de Québec, Osheaga and Spotify, and social media services like Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

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.

The University of Lethbridge and Lethbridge College both participated Wednesday. "Training managers on mental health makes them better able to identify and support the mental health of their employees (and themselves) even while employees are off on leave".
