Let's talk about mental health

For more information about joining the conversation, raising money for mental health initiatives or finding resources, visit the Bell Let's Talk website.

Recognising the magnitude of the problem and its human cost, the British Safety Council has launched a range of mental health training courses which are created to start conversations about mental health and support employees who are experiencing mental ill-health.

Not only will the service allow people to get psychiatric help in their home, regardless of where they live, it will also reduce the impact on emergency services, the emergency department and police calls. "We can do a lot as a friend or family member".

"This gift will continue to move us forward in advancing how we help those who are struggling". The British Safety Council also offers the two-day Mental Health First Aid course, developed by Mental Health First Aid England, which teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue. "By learning how to start and engage in open conversations about mental health we could help to save someone's life one day". Too many people are suffering in silence, and could be helped tremendously if they could start facing the issue through honest, frank discussion.

Bell will donate five cents to mental health programs for each #BellLetsTalk tweet; each view of the Bell Let's Talk video on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat; and each use of the Bell Let's Talk Facebook photo frame and Snapchat filter. Chenhall said people shouldn't be afraid to simply talk about mental illness.




Manage the Conversation - a three-hour workshop to give line managers the skills and confidence to listen to and talk with someone who needs to share a problem regarding their mental health.

The Bell grant comes on the heels of a $242,000 grant from the province's community Gaming Grant program in December to the Canadian Mental Health Association to expand Foundry services through the use of a specially equipped recreational vehicle to be used in the community.

Whether it be a smile, being a good listener or an invitation for coffee and a chat, these simple acts of kindness can help open up the conversation and let someone know you are there for them.

"Health Sciences North Foundation is excited to receive this $20,000 grant from the Bell Let's Talk Community Fund", said Mary Lou Hussak, president and CEO of the HSN Foundation.
