Creating positive change and supporting Canada’s mental health

The impact of each interaction on Bell Let’s Talk Day has been felt across the nation. Thank you to all those who continue to speak up about mental illness. Together, we can all play a role in creating positive change.

The Bell Let’s Talk Community Fund will provide grants in the range of $5,000 to $25,000 to projects that improve access to mental health care, supports and services for people in Canada. Click here for more information.

In July 2020, Bell Let’s Talk announced a new $5 million Diversity Fund to support the mental health and well-being of members of Black, Indigenous and People of Colour communities across Canada. For more information, click here.

Arviat Youth Piliriqatigit/Hamlet of Arviat, NU

Arviat Youth Piliriqatigit (AYP) is an organization which was initially formed by youth to provide peer support and interventions targeted at youth suicide prevention. In response to the lack of counselling services in the community, they will train 25 community members in the Wraparound process. The Ikajutigiitsaigit Project will provide a vehicle for youth-to-youth counselling and support, a process for re-engaging families in shared relationship healing by bringing together resources as a community and wrapping them around those in crisis. It will establishes a core group of young and engaged community caregivers who we can also deliver training and support.
