Brescia's interactive event included information booths, activities, complimentary food, hot apple cider and give-aways for all Western University students, faculty and staff.
Last year, there were 145,442,699 interactions, which means well over $7-million was raised towards mental health initiatives. The team has been instrumental in the creation of the recently launched Peer Support Space. Throughout the day we will be listening to what the people of Ontario have to say, as we build a comprehensive and connected mental health and addictions system that makes it easier for people to get the services and supports they need.
There will be: speakers, refreshments, Bell Let's Talk swag and let's start talking!
"I am so excited to be celebrating the 10 anniversary of Bell Let's Talk Day with Canadians in every corner of the country and people all around the world", said Mary Deacon, Chair of Bell Let's Talk.
Let's put an end to the stigma around mental health.
The City of Barrie joins more than 80 communities around Canada that are raising the Bell Let's Talk flag to show support for mental health in their communities.
On 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 frame or Snapchat filter, Bell will contribute 5 cents more to Canadian mental health programs.
Since 2011, Canadians and people around the globe have sent more than one billion messages in support of mental health.
