You can support mental health on Bell Let's Talk Day

In honour of Bell Let's Talk Day, activities were held all day on Wednesday, the event including prizes, games, Bell Let's Talk swag, a photo booth and T-shirt designing activities, among other activities.

In recognition of Bell Let's Talk Day, the Daily Commercial News and Journal of Commerce has gathered a collection of articles on mental health and construction to showcase the efforts being made by a variety of stakeholders across the country.

Bell's total funding commitment to mental health is set to top $100 million, as workers are encouraged to Tweet, Snapchat and Facebook their mental health stories and support.

It is an initiative started by Bell, CTV Northern Ontario's parent company, September 2010 and began as a new conversation about Canada's mental health with a goal to help end stigma. The CCH's child and youth mental health services donated door prizes, snacks and pizza.

He told Paddy Daly on the VOCM Morning Show it's important to realise that we have a long way to go, and need to be engaged in things more substantive than awareness raising.

Sevilla then spurned the opportunity to score from the spot themselves as Ever Banega saw his penalty saved by Jasper Cillessen. The home side then had goalkeeper Jaspar Cillessen to thank for two great saves in the 27th minute.

According to Bell Media, between 2010 and 2018 Let's Talk day generated 867,449,649 events and raised 93 millon ($93,423,628.80 to be exact), including $7 million ($6,919,199.75) generated a year ago.

The initiative by Bell Canada donates five cents for every interaction with the hashtag, view of their videos on social media, and mention in text conversations to mental health services and support programs. "There's actually a lot in Medicine Hat to provide assistance to people in a crisis, or if you just need to talk to somebody".

One of the other key ways Let's Talk funds get distributed is through the Bell Let's Talk Community Fund.

"Every manager at Bell Canada has been trained in mental health issues", said Cope at the National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in Canadian Workplaces launch in 2013.

Over the past year, construction industry leaders have been hosting panel discussions, conferences and events focusing on mental health in the sector.
