Bell Let’s Talk Day gets the conversation going!

On February 8, millions of Canadians from coast to coast to coast joined national spokesperson Clara Hughes on Bell Let's Talk Day in an unprecedented national conversation about mental health.

A new survey from Harris/Decima shows that 60 per cent of Canadians have been seeing, hearing and talking more about mental health issues. More than 70 per cent believe this is already having a positive impact on how mental health is perceived.

On Let’s Talk day, Canadians responded with 78,520,284 texts, long-distance calls and retweets - a 19 per cent increase over the first Bell Let's Talk Day in 2011. With Bell donating 5 cents for each text, long-distance call and retweet, Bell Let's Talk Day 2012 results in a Bell donation of $3,926,014.20 to Canadian mental health programs.
