Every day in Canada, 500,000 people miss work due to mental illness.
Tomorrow, January 28, marks the fourth annual Bell Let’s Talk campaign. The mental health campaign is aimed at anti-stigma, care and access, research and workplace health.
In 2013, over 96 million texts, long distance calls, tweets and Facebook shares helped Bell Let’s Talk raise over $4M! Again on January 28, 5 cents will be donated to mental health initiatives across the country for every Bell customer text message and long distance call made. Five cents will also be donated for all tweets using the hashtag #BellLetsTalk and Facebook shares of the Bell Let’s Talk image.
So come tomorrow, raise your voice by texting, tweeting, calling and sharing to raise money and awareness about mental health!
