Bell Canada is holding Bell Let's Talk Day on Wednesday, January 25, 2017. If you have a Bell cell plan then participation is easy as the carrier will donate 5¢ to mental health initiatives for every text message, mobile call, and long distance call by subscribers on January 25. You don't have to be a Bell subscriber, though. This year there are other ways for people to get involved. For example, Bell is counting tweets with the #BellLetsTalk hashtag that day and will add 5¢ for every one. Also, their FaceBook page offers other ways for people to participate.

While raising funds for mental health is a fantastic initiative, don't lose sight of the other goal of the day and that is for all Canadians to be able to have conversations about mental health.
