Taking Positive Action

Bell Let’s Talk launched in 2010 with a focus on building awareness, acceptance and action in mental health. Since then Canadians have taken the conversation around mental health to remarkable heights, making it clear that mental health matters. It’s time to build on that increased awareness and acceptance and put a greater focus on action to create positive change in our schools, workplaces, and communities.

Canadians and organizations are doing just that. In 2021 survey conducted by Nielsen Consumer Insights, 57% of Canadians said they have taken steps to take care of their own mental health and 56% said they talk to friends, family members or colleagues about mental health.

Through the 2020 Bell Let’s Talk Day campaign, we featured 8 outstanding Canadian organizations taking action by providing supports and services to make a difference for people experiencing mental health challenges. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, when it comes to mental health, now more than ever, every action counts. These remarkable organizations continue to take action to support Canadians in a time of physical and social distancing to ensure people have the support they need during the pandemic. You can learn more about each of these organizations below.
