Bell Let’s Talk Day
January 29 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Spearheaded by Brescia’s Wellness Education Peers (WEPs), a team of student “mental health champions”, the Bell Let’s Talk at Brescia event is designed to encourage open discussion of mental health and wellness in an effort to reduce the stigma people experience with mental health concerns. Brescia’s event will feature information booths, an on-site photo booth, complimentary food and a give-away of the iconic Bell Let’s Talk Day toques.
Since its inception in September 2010, the Bell Let’s Talk campaign has worked to help put an end to the stigma around mental illness. On Wednesday, January 30th, Bell Let’s Talk Day, Bell will contribute 5 cents to Canadian mental health programs 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 filters.
