Let's Talk About Mental Health

Today is #BellLetsTalkDay in Canada. Bell Let’s Talk day is an initiative “dedicated to moving mental health forward in Canada. It promotes awareness and action with a strategy built on 4 key pillars: fighting the stigmaimproving access to caresupporting world-class research and leading by example in workplace mental health.

Although every day is a good day to talk about mental health, there is a feeling of safety and a sense of community that moves me to speak-out about a cause near and dear to my heart on this particular day.
