Bell Let’s Talk Day

Today is Bell Let’s Talk Day – for every text, mobile and long distance call made on the Bell network, tweet using #BellLetsTalk, social media video view, or use of the Facebook or Snapchat filter, Bell will contribute 5 cents more to Canadian mental health programs.

5 simple ways to end stigma and start a conversation about mental illness:

1)      Language matters – pay attention to the words you use about mental illness
2)      Educate yourself – learn, know and talk more, understand the signs
3)      Be kind – small acts of kindness speak a lot
4)      Listen and ask – sometimes it’s best to just listen
5)      Talk about it – start a dialogue, break the silence

And remember: Columbia College counsellors are available in Student Services to assist you with mental health support, information and resources.
