4 pillars

Dedicated to moving mental health forward in Canada, Bell Let’s Talk promotes awareness and action with a strategy built on 4 key pillars: Fighting the stigma, improving access to care, supporting world-class research and leading by example in workplace mental health.

Anti-stigma

One of the biggest hurdles for anyone suffering from mental illness is overcoming the stigma attached to it. The annual Bell Let’s Talk awareness campaign and Day is driving the national conversation to help reduce this stigma and promote awareness and understanding, and talking is an important first step towards lasting change.

Care & access

Bell supports a variety of organizations, including grassroots agencies, local hospitals and universities, to help provide Canadians with support services when and where they need it.

Research

Research holds the greatest promise to better understand treatments and cures. Bell is investing in best-in-class research programs with the potential to have a transformative impact on the mental health and well-being of Canadians.

Workplace health

Mental health is the leading cause of workplace disability in Canada and represents 15% of Canada’s burden of disease. Bell is committed to leading by example in our own workplace by adopting the voluntary Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace and is encouraging greater corporate engagement across Canada.
