Bell Let's Talk thanks organizations across Canada for taking action to support mental health

Montréal, Wednesday, January 22, 2020

With the 10th annual Bell Let's Talk Day coming up on Wednesday January 29, we're celebrating this important milestone with the hundreds of organizations across Canada that are taking action to support mental health.

"The theme of this year's campaign is Mental Health: Every Action Counts and we extend our heartfelt thanks to the many organizations that are working to help build momentum around the world's biggest mental health conversation," said Mary Deacon, Chair of Bell Let's Talk. "We appreciate the support of these wonderful organizations and encourage everyone to take their own actions big and small to help create positive change for people living with mental illness."

Now including media creators and distributors, social media platforms, governments, the military, unions, sports teams and athletic organizations, festivals, associations, corporations and competitors, the list of organizations supporting the mental health message and the Bell Let's Talk campaign grows each year. In addition, 227 Canadian universities and colleges are holding events on campuses across the country to promote mental health.
