Bell Let's Talk: Keep Pushing
Today is #BellLetsTalk Day! The annual Bell Let’s Talk Day awareness campaign has become one of the country’s most extensive conversations about mental health. January 25th encourages people in Canada and abroad to talk and take action, reducing stigma and promoting awareness for mental health. As a partner of Bell, we are proud to support Bell Let’s Talk Day and join the conversation.
This year, in honour of Bell Let’s Talk Day, Canada Skateboard is hosting a Suicide First Aid training session in partnership with the Ben Raemers Foundation. This training session will be held for 20 individuals working directly with the skateboarding community daily. We recognize that mental health is a community matter, requiring a community response. The more we increase awareness, resources and tools needed to help each other, the safer our communities will be.
Canada Skateboard recognizes that on #BellLetsTalk Day, January 25th and every day throughout the year, we can all take meaningful action to create positive change for mental health in Canada.
Here are some actions to create change:
Choose a mental health organization to learn about or support.
Help a friend struggling with their mental health by learning how to support them.
Ask about how your school, workplace or community is creating change in mental health.
Nurture your well-being by practicing and learning mental health strategies
Get involved in a mental health initiative or organize an event to support mental health.
Engage in conversations about mental health to fight the stigma
Share your actions using #BellLetsTalk and help inspire others to join the movement to create positive change. Let’s continue to take action and make a long-term change for mental health in Canada. Visit bell.ca/letstalk and download the Bell Let’s Talk toolkit to learn more.
