Everyone deals with their mental health in different ways. Even the smallest action can make a world of difference during these difficult times. We should all aim to do our best to support mental health and strengthen our communities now and in the
We will be using our reach and influence to create a buzz around the Bell Let’s Talk campaign and galvanize the Peel Region into progressive action.
There are five main charities that we will be working alongside. Cam’s Kids is focused on providing support to young people struggling with anxiety, helping them cope effectively in order to reach their full potential and realize their dreams.
The charity was founded in 2014 in memory of Cameron Hicks and his legacy of love and kindness is honoured every day through the Foundation.
SOCH Mental Health’s mission is to combat the stigma towards mental health by changing the way our various communities “think” about mental health. It is an initiative started by two registered nurses from Brampton, tailored at providing the South Asian community with awareness, skills, and knowledge about mental health.

We also have a unique plan to attempt for the first time. Due to Covid-19, we are unable to host our normal hockey game. In lieu of this, we will be putting on a virtual game day! Using Twitch, the plan will be to set in motion an entirely online NHL gaming tournament on Wednesday, January 27, 2021. Our broadcaster, Anthony Fusco, will keep us entertained during the entire game with special guests and interviews.
During the entire month of January, the Beast podcast,the Blue Post, is dedicated entirely to discussing mental and physical wellness. We’ve interviewed physiotherapists, trainers, bracing specialists and mental performance consultants in order to gain access to in-depth information and creative ways to improve general mental and physical health. It is up to all of us to start the conversation and end the stigma around mental health.
On Bell Let’s Talk day, Bell donates 5 cents to Canadian mental health programs for every applicable text, local or long distance call, tweet or TikTok video using #BellLetsTalk!
Every Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Snapchat, TikTok, Twitter and YouTube view of the Bell Let’s Talk Day video, and every use of the Bell Let’s Talk Facebook frame or Snapchat filter benefits and supports Canadian mental health. All will be at no cost to participants beyond what they would normally pay their service provider for online or phone access.
