Statement on Bell Let's Talk Day

26 January 2022


Since 2010, Canadians and people around the globe have joined in the world’s largest conversation around mental health on Bell Let’s Talk Day. Together we have taken big steps to reduce the stigma around mental health issues and inspire one another to take action, but there is still a lot more work to be done around reducing the stigma of mental health, mental health disorders, and much more.


This year’s Bell Let’s Talk Day campaign highlights the ways that we can support ourselves and those we care about through actions like listening, being there and talking. Every Canadian can play a part in their communities, workplaces, schools and at home.


In Canada alone, 3.2 million youth are at risk for developing depression every year. A mental health disorder that if help is able to be accessed, about 80% of the people affected could recover or feel less depressed. Canada’s youth suicide rates are the third highest in the industrialized world at 24% of youth between the ages of 15 to 24. This is why we get loud and raise our voices. We must lend a hand to others.


Do your part today and help raise awareness and funds for mental health and lets get loud about what really matters most. Bell Canada will be donating 5 cents to mental health initiatives in Canada for every one of the following that is done today:


  • Calls: For every call made by Bell wireless and home phone customers, Bell will donate 5¢ more to mental health initiatives.

  • Text: For every text message sent by a Bell wireless customer, Bell will donate 5¢ more towards mental health initiatives.

  • Instagram: Each time you watch their official video

  • LinkedIn: Each time you watch their official video
