Today is the 7th Annual Bell Let’s Talk day.
The Canadian telecommunications company, Bell, has made this day a yearly focus on Mental Health issues, nd encouraging everyone to talk about it.
Last year I posted on it, simply describing the cause, and this year it has taken on a new meaning after losing a friend to mental health issues in June of 2016.
It’s already trending early this morning on Twitter, and for every tweet that uses the hashtag #BellLetsTalk the company will give 5¢ to mental health initiatives. The same goes true if you use their designated Snapchat filter.
As of this posting, there have been over 6 million interactions, which can all be tracked here.
Please make sure to help spread the word on mental illness, and keep an eye on those around you who might be suffering.
If you want to donate to the cause, I would recommend NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness), who are the nation’s largest grassroots mental health advocacy organization.
