SUPERIOR NORTH -- The Superior-Greenstone District School Board will help to drive meaningful progress in mental health on Bell Let's Talk Day.

The pandemic has affected every aspect of our lives, including our mental health, however, tools are available for support.

Since 2010, Canadians and people around the globe have joined in the world’s largest conversation around mental health on Bell Let’s Talk Day, which will take place this year on Wednesday, Jan. 26.

Together we have taken big steps to reduce the stigma around mental health issues and inspire one another to take action and help create a Canada where everyone can access the mental health support they need.

In a recent survey conducted by Nielsen Consumer Insights, 82 per cent of Canadians now say they are comfortable speaking with others about mental health, compared to only 42 per cent in 2012. By joining in and taking action, we are all helping to make a real difference.

This year’s Bell Let’s Talk Day campaign highlights the ways that we can support ourselves and those we care about through actions like listening, being there and talking.
