Bell Let's Talk mental health campaign kicks off today

Bell originally donated $50 million to launch the initiative. Tell us in the comments.

As a result, over 6.3 million people across Canada are said to have been supported with access to mental health care.

Olympic, World and Canadian figure skating champion Gabby Daleman joined the Bell Let's Talk Day campaign, tweeting, "As a person who suffers with depression, Anxiety, ADHD, Learning disability and Eating disorder nothing makes me happier than #BellLetsTalk⁠⁠".

Paige Hutchinson, from the Student Success Centre, hands a toque to Kristy Marshall, along with fellow education students Stephanie Nicholl and Aaron Jang, as they stopped to write messages of encouragement Wednesday as part of Bell Lets Talk Day at the University of Lethbridge.

Break the silence. Mental illness touches us all in some way directly or through a friend, family member or colleague. "There's actually a lot in Medicine Hat to provide assistance to people in a crisis, or if you just need to talk to somebody".

Last year Bell Media provided $500,000 to the Institut universitaire en santé mentale de Montréal Foundation (FIUSMM) to develop apps and mobile support applications, $1 million to the Mental Health Commission of Canada to develop programs to support post-secondary students, $400,000 to the Montreal General Hospital Foundation to acquire a repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) device, and $150,000 to Ogijiita Pimatiswin Kinamatwin for Indigenous youth support services. Organizations will have until March 15 to submit an application for consideration.

During the conference, Samsung said that it would begin the mass production of foldable Infinity Display in the coming months. Also, Samsung Galaxy S10 and Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite were rumoured to pack in 3,500mAh and 3,100mAh batteries, respectively.

"Organizations aim to foster a psychologically safe and supportive culture, which is why HR leaders should take every opportunity to bring the conversation about mental health in the workplace to the forefront".

One option is addictions and mental health counselling, which is offered through Alberta Health Services, as well as many private counselling clinics.

It will also donate for every use of the "Bell Let's Talk" Facebook profile picture frame or Snapchat filter.

The Canadian Olympic Committee is also trying to shed some light on the topic as they have created a short documentary on Olympic diver Francois Imbeau-Dulac and his battle with mental health as well as a write-up on Olympic soccer player Stephane Labbe.
