Every one of us has, in some way, shape or form, been affected by mental health issues such as addictions, anxieties, etc. or other forms such as bipolar, schizophrenia, phobias and on and on. I'm so glad there that is such a thing as a "Let's Talk" day, because we all have so much to learn and we still have a long way to go in removing the stigma associated with mental health issues.
Bell's Let's Talk day has opened up the conversation in so many ways. There is even a "Let's Talk Toolkit".
On any given week, according to the Mental Health Commission, there are more than 500,000 Canadians who are unable to work because of mental health issues. There are still so many people who either "don't believe" in mental health problems, or simply don't want to talk about it. Often times, they are the ones who most need help!
Take a look at Bell's "Let's Talk" page as it has some really insightful and helpful information.
Let's Talk. :)
