Mary Anne Thomas Everyone needs to know this and pass on...maybe the judicial system will finally help solve this problem with tougher penalties!!!
Mary Anne Thomas Maybe this will encourage Canada!!

While I think any discussion on mental health is a positive thing, I don’t see how Bell’s Let’s Talk day helps the majority of people suffering from mental health issues. I think anyone suffering from mental health issues has already talked long and hard enough with friends and family. The last thing they need is more talk, they need real concrete help from a professional. The fact is, most people would benefit from speaking with a psychologist, the earlier in their life the better. Unfortunately, the average hourly rates to see a psychologist run anywhere from $150.00 to $200.00. Very few people who need the help can afford help at these rates so they suffer in silence. Yes, some people have health benefit plans that cover some costs to a limit, but it’s a far cry from what is typically needed to cover enough sessions to fully help a person back to health. People will use what their plans offer then leave partially treated with few options other than borrowing the money to continue treatment or give it up. Until psychologist visits are taken seriously and covered by OHIP and other government health plans across Canada people will continue to suffer. Something must be done about wait times as well. For someone that is suffering a one day wait is too long and real world wait times are way longer than that. I don’t know where all of the money goes that Bell collects on Let’s Talk day, but it sure would be nice to see it go to where it is really needed.
Lets talk about people who have PTSD, but aren't front line workers or Vets. We exist.
Every year when this campaign comes up I find myself feeling so frustrated! I do believe that awareness has been raised to some degree but I find the campaign falls short in offering valuable, usable, accessible advice to friends and family members to know the “right” or “wrong” things to do, in the moments of extreme sadness and anxiety. Easy to say, seek professional help...completely unrealistic to get that help in a timely manner. I think I would like to hear from more people who are suffering with an illness; how can we help you ourselves, in our own surroundings, to get you through your lowest of times, until, or even if, you can get professional help? I know everyone is a separate individual but any advice to those of us who love someone who deals with this would be so helpful! I wish you all people who care enough for you to always be looking for answers and acceptance of who you are❤️
Thanks for the help regarding awareness, we are getting better. Stigma is getting better. Acceptance is getting better. What is NOT getting better are the wait times and quality of treatment offered. How about taking some of that cash and investing it in real treatment programs and real health care? How about using your influence as a corporation to get our government to put real money into treatment?
I suffer with OCD - intrusive thoughts, I am always ready to share what I go though so others can learn. Mental health is a daily fight for some of us. Just to have a "normal" life. My thoughts control my life! Imagine fighting with your own mind 24/7. Exhausting! Be brave. Share, care, love, and listen! Even the smallest bit of education can help others that suffer!
Ok so i was only Diagnosed with depression and anxiety this year and some days are worse then others but it will never beat me i took the right steps im on meds and i talk to a Therapist and im not ashamed of it there is help out there your not alone
The reality is this.....talk is cheap and most of the people talking about this are do-gooder talkers who are jumping on the band-wagon of the newest social cause. From my personal experience, you should keep it to yourself as the lesser of two evils. I have been talking about what I have been going through for the last 3 years. What you get in reality is stigmatized and shunned. Forget about friends who stop seeing you because they are "busy", work because you are viewed as unreliable and it is very tough on your family as you are letting them down as it effects them deeply and is just another source of guilt and frustration.
Hey Bell remember that time you tried to fire an employee that was off due to mental health issues. Pepperidge Farm remembers.
Does this campaign raises awareness....yes, it does however it does not provide more services. The system is broken and laws get in the way of providing real help! On paper, the services look fantastic but the reality of accessibility is very different and the process is lengthy especially in rural towns across Canada! CMHA receives a large amount of $ from multiple sources at every level, community fundraising, govt, private, businesses etc. This goes towards generous salaries, expensive new buildings (Kelowna BC and probably elsewhere) as well as marketing. Don't get me wrong, we do have to talk about it to destigmatize and that part is much better than previous generations. Our politicians need to step it up and change our old Canadian laws and open our borders to modern mental health treatments utilized around the world that every Canadian can access right here!
Folks, when you SHARE this message, $ will be given to Mental Health.. . DO NOT USE FACEBOOK MESSENGER to BLAST this at everyone in your list. It does not contribute any money to mental health, and maybe might hurt someone's mental health by SPAMMING THEM. I've received this by FB messenger 20 times already!
Still a lot of stigma, especially in the Workplace. I know discrimination laws are in place but it doesn’t mean they are following them...It’s best if we stay in hiding. Sad but true.
Bell Let's Talk about why First Nation Youth commit suicide 5 to 6 times more often then Non-native Youth
Let’s listen. Too often the talk isn’t heard.
Let's talk about systemic issues. Let's talk about how trauma is hardly ever mentioned as a cause of mental illness. Let's talk about how the drug undustry is heavily involved in who gets listened to and helped, because they fund research if it will support the use of drugs. At least 30% of depression sufferers find no help from drugs.
Talking is great but you need people that will listen and help too !
This is a great cause! It raises awareness and gets us to listen 🙂🙂 it's sad that some people are commenting such negative things on this video.... try and stay positive everyone! At least for the day! 🙂
#Isufferfromschizophrenia #Nolongerfeelalone #thanksbellletstalk
It is all well and good to talk but it is MORE important to LISTEN !!! My medical " professional " DIDN'T so now I don't TRUST the Medical professionals anymore!!!!
Such a great help busting down stigma and opening spaces for conversation. Now we need the gov’t and organizations to put more $$ into mental health care!!
Bell has raised an amazing amount of funds for Canadian Mental Health and really opened up the conversation! Come on my family, friends and students let continue the conversation! Thank you # Bellletstalk
Always talk..just blurt it out...tell them you are trying to figure out why you feel they way you do...say how you feel ...people will judge you but that doesn't matter because you are talking, asking for help...its not a sign of weakness it IS a sign of strength!
Lol I love the people using a charity movement to complain about internet costs. To you..I hope the 5 cents goes towards your plight #narcissistic #keyboard #victim #bellletstalk
God bless everyone who has mental health,To anyone who would like to talk I am always here, hugs and prayers and love to everyone!!
though I really hate many aspects of Bell the company......this is not one of them......curious, has there ever been an attempt at making this across all telecommunications companies in Canada (ie. Rogers, Telus, whoever?)…..
How does bell track this through messenger? Where is the money going how is it being spent?? Great idea creating awaereness/ costs nothing on Facebook. The campaign does this alone...we always hear millions are raised. But what happens to that money?

Did you know only 1 in 3 Canadians fully understand what sexual consent is? If you think about sex like riding a bike, it's pretty straightforward. EVERYONE should understand consent, so share this video and start the conversation.
Western University Indeed there is! Please email email@example.com and we can send it to you. 🙂
Western University That is an excellent point Summer! We will make note of this in the event new versions of the video are produced in the future. Thank you.
Western University The YouTube link to the video can be found here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JwlKjRaUaw 🙂
Western University Also, Western is hosting a forum, Consent & Compassion: Preventing and Responding to Sexual Violence At Western October 26, 2015, 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Great Hall. For more details and to register visit http://safecampus.uwo.ca/sexual_violence/
Three well-spent minutes, well-done Western U!
this seems like the consent tea thing?
NOPE...when uncle ernie asks his niece to go for a bike ride and his niece says yes?..they go for a bike ride? She said yes..in other words....you left out a very important thing...THE AGE OF CONSENT...if you are a minor you cannot legally consent.to "A bike ride"..and if the person "riding"with you is an adult (18 and over) it is considered rape.
Spot on !
This is very good!
As a parent, you guys did a great job with this piece. An award winner for sure 😊
I feel like this was conveniently ripped off a more original idea
Have you seen the one about drinking tea? It's good too!
fun to listen to. informative
Love this. It should win some kind of award. Would be great for high schoolers as well.
What if you have gone for three bike rides and she says, let's drunk bike ride. Is it OK then? What about 5 or 100 bike rides? Is it ever ok to drunk bike ride?
I like these vids but it's sad they have to exist though.....it's not that hard, it's common sense
Great video, wonder where you got the inspiration! 😉
This is great!
Bridgette Simmons I love these, these are great
How do 1 in 3 Canadians not know what consent is? Who made up this number?
Leave it to the Brits!!!
