Need mental health support, but don’t know where to go? Let’s Talk
Today is Bell Let’s Talk Day, a day to spark conversations about mental health, raise awareness and to make positive change.
Positive change includes taking actionable steps to help connect those who are struggling to receive the support and services they need so they can begin their journey to wellness and recovery.
Many of our clients, families and caregivers, have told us that they didn’t know where to go for support or how to access it, and they had no idea that help was available now in their local communities.
So, when we talk about our mental health today, let’s also talk about where to get help and how to connect to mental health and addictions supports available in our community. Make sure to include the hashtags #CallTalkConnect and #upyourlife and refer to the following local services:
