Bell Let’s Talk Day—Join the Conversation!
Bell Let’s Talk Day is Wednesday, January 26, 2022, and UPEI is joining in to help drive progress in mental health.
UPEI is excited to participate once again in the Bell Let's Talk campaign as part of our year-round efforts to build a culture of care that nurtures and celebrates the mental health and wellness of everyone in the University community.
COVID-19 has affected every aspect of our lives, including our mental health. However, tools are available to support ourselves and each other. UPEI Pandemic Survival Tips and Resources Bell Let’s Talk COVID-19 Resources
Since 2010, Canadians and people around the globe have joined in the world’s largest conversation around mental health on Bell Let’s Talk Day. Together we have taken big steps to reduce the stigma around mental health issues, inspire one another to take action, and help create a Canada where everyone can access the mental health support they need. In a recent survey conducted by Nielsen Consumer Insights, 82% of Canadians now say they are comfortable speaking with others about mental health, compared to only 42% in 2012.
This year’s Bell Let’s Talk Day campaign highlights ways that we can support ourselves and those we care about through actions like listening, being there, and talking.
UPEI is joining in the 12th annual Bell Let’s Talk initiative by assembling resources and partnering on a number of activities taking place all week. Learn more.
On Bell Let’s Talk Day, January 26, here is how you can join the conversation:
Bell donates 5 cents to Canadian mental health programs for every applicable text, local or long distance call, tweet or TikTok video using #BellLetsTalk, every Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Snapchat, TikTok, Twitter, and YouTube view of the Bell Let’s Talk Day video, and every use of the Bell Let’s Talk Facebook frame or Snapchat lens. You can show your support at no cost beyond what you would normally pay your service provider for online or phone access.
You can snap a selfie in a virtual Bell Let’s Talk toque, and share a personalized mental health message customized for UPEI using Bell Let’s Talk Virtual Photo Booth. Use the hashtag #BellLetsTalk and support Bell’s commitment for Canadian mental health!
