Bell let's talk

It’s time to speak up about mental illness and how it affects us.

New conversation

In September 2010, Bell Let’s Talk began a new conversation about Canada’s mental health. At that time, most people were not talking about mental illness. But the numbers spoke volumes about the urgent need for action. Millions of Canadians, engaged in an open discussion about mental illness, offering new ideas and hope for those who struggle, with numbers growing every year.

Care and research

Institutions and organizations large and small in every region received new funding for access, care and research from Bell Let’s Talk and from governments and corporations that have joined the cause. Building on ten years of increased awareness and acceptance around mental health, Bell Let’s Talk is focused on engaging Canadians to take action to create positive change in mental health.

Mental health

 In March 2020, Bell Mobility announced the extension of the Bell Let’s Talk mental health initiative for a further 5 years and an increase in Bell’s total funding commitment for Canadian mental health to at least $155 million. Have you struggled with your own mental health? You are not alone!

A few facts

Let’s learn about Canadian mental health.

Canadians in the lowest income group are 3 to 4 times more likely than those in the highest income group to report poor to fair mental health.

People with substance use problems are up to 3 times more likely to have a mental illness. More than 15% having a co-occurring mental illness.
