David Gabert, communications lead and project co-ordinator for CMHA, said while Bell Let's Talk raises awareness, it also gives a great platform across the country for people to look locally at what resources are available, and to realize they're not alone in their struggles.

"Bell Let's Talk Day has quickly grown into the biggest conversation about mental health anywhere and we hope you'll join in to let those who struggle know they've got your support".

Bell originally donated $50 million to launch the initiative.

"Not only did we achieve significant new milestones in participation and Bell funding, Canada's leadership in growing the mental health conversation is clearly capturing the attention of the world".

Facebook to integrate Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp into single system
Keeping people on Messenger and WhatsApp would ensure Facebook can rely on those platforms as a source of ad revenue. In a period of three years, Facebook bought Instagram and WhatsApp for $1 billion and $19 billion respectively.


As part of this social media campaign, there was roughly 215 universities across Canada which participated in Let's Talk Day, along with more than 370 mental health initiatives on different campuses.

Rarely interviewed about Bell's commitment to mental health (Samaritanmag has tried), in an early interview with The Globe & Mail in 2010, he told the newspaper, "What we've tried to do is come out and talk quite openly about it".

Cope took his personal connection to create a program of best practices in dealing with employee mental health issues at Bell.

Nationally recognized, on January 30 of every year, Bell Canada will donate towards Canadian mental health initiatives by contributing five cents for every applicable text, call, tweet, social media video view and use of their Facebook frame or Snapchat filter, as stated on their website.

West Ham make late move for Chelsea striker Batshuayi
But Spurs have made a decision to not pursue a deal despite the injury to Harry Kane keeping the England captain out until March. Any deal may still depend on whether they can agree a fee with Paris Saint-Germain for midfielder Idrissa Gueye, however.


However, it's key, said Berndt, to continue talking about mental health, long after the initiative ends.

We envision an Ontario where people don't need to be in crisis to find timely access to mental health treatment.

The grants are given out on one-year terms and the deadline to apply for the next round of funding is March 15, 2019.

Lethbridge College had an influx of worldwide students this year and the topic of mental health and stigma typically hasn't been at the forefront of conversation for those students in their cultures. One important aspect is ensuring that leaders are properly trained and equipped to both recognize their own mental health and to have the tools necessary to support employees. A number of events to bring awareness to mental health are taking place at the college this week.
