Tomorrow - January 28th is Bell Let’s Talk Day – which is a wide-reaching, multi-year program designed to break the silence around mental illness and support mental health all across Canada, on Bell Let’s Talk Day, Bell will donate more towards mental health initiatives in Canada by contributing 5¢ for every applicable text, call, tweet or TikTok video using #BellLetsTalk, social media video view and use of our Facebook frame or Snapchat filter.
Let’s all take some time to make sure we are checking in with family, friends, clients and colleagues to make sure we are all connected and reaching out to anyone who might need a special note, nudge or some reassurance that we are all ok – we will get thru this, together.
Thank you and Let’s TALK!
