Did you know that one in two young people struggle alone with their mental health? This year, Bell Let’s Talk is striving to create a real change in mental health and has a vision of a Canada where everyone can get the mental health support they need.
There is not just one way, or one day, to show your support. You can use the ideas below for inspiration or come up with your own actions to help create change.
To learn more about Bell Let’s Talk Day and to access tools and resources, visit their website.
CTN is also proud to participate and support this initiative through our social media channels. Please follow CTN’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter handles and the hashtag #BellLetsTalk for more information about mental health and wellness.
If you’re looking for additional resources to support you and your family in Simcoe County and York Region, you can visit the mental health resources and support page on our Online Resource Centre.
It’s important that together we continue to create safe spaces in the community that encourage conversations about mental health and wellness. By promoting inclusion and belonging, we support CTN’s vision of a vibrant community where all kids, youth and families belong.
On January 25 from 12 to 1 p.m., join CTN for a free virtual workshop led by Dr. Mary Louise Ireland from the Canadian Mental Health Association. The workshop will continue the conversation around mental health following Bell Let's Talk Day and will focus on reframing and resetting our coping mechanisms for stress management. You will receive tools and strategies to help build resilience and manage stress in your life. You can register for the workshop here.
You are not alone. If you are in crisis, please go to the closest hospital or call 9-1-1. If you’re thinking about suicide, call or text 9-8-8 toll-free, anytime.
