Bell Let’s Talk Day

Bell Let's TalkJanuary 28th is Bell Let’s Talk Day 2014. Join the Canada-wide conversation about mental health!

The 4th annual “Bell Let’s Talk” campaign invites all Canadians to talk, text and tweet about mental health to help end the stigma around mental
illness and support mental health initiatives around the country.

Canada’s six-time olympic medalist, Clara Hughes, the spokesperson for the campaign states: “We all have family members, friends or  colleagues who will experience mental illness or we may struggle ourselves, as I have – yet most people impacted still won’t seek support because they fear admitting they need help. By  talking openly and supportively about mental illness, we can all help break the stigma and  improve Canadian mental health.”

Costs related to mental Illness, including health care costs, lost productivity, and reductions in health-related quality of life, have a significant impact on the Canadian economy and are estimated at $51 billion per year.

At DRUHC, we are well aware of the emotional and mental challenges that many are facing in their personal lives and how it may affect the ability to adequately find and keep employment.

In addition to openly talking about mental health, strategies are available to help cope and respond to every day challenges. To help you develop a personal strategy for coping with stress and emotional difficulties, attend DRUHC’s Building Resiliency workshop. View the event calendar.
