Bell Let’s Talk Day
Bell Let’s Talk Day
On Bell Let’s Talk Day, we come together with millions of Canadians to focus on mental health awareness and support. This yearly event, led by Bell Canada, helps people talk openly about important things, challenge stigma, and promote positive change in mental health care.
Across the country, communities are coming together to support Canadian mental health organizations and initiatives. Here at St. Peter’s College (SPC), our students are actively participating in the Bell Let’s Talk movement, showcasing their unwavering support and solidarity.
On January 24, 2024, SPC students were really excited about joining the campaign by writing positive messages of encouragement and positivity on Bell Let’s Talk posters. These posters were hung up on the walls of our student lounge, the posters were placed in the student lounge so that all students could view them.
Bell Let’s Talk Day is really important because it shows how we need to understand mental health better and stop people feeling bad about it. As one of our dedicated student services, Jayden Engele, rightly expressed, “I think it is great for students to see that the college and fellow students take mental health seriously and that there are supports available for them.” He also added “Many people battle with issues regarding their mental health, especially university students. We want them to know that they are not alone, and it is ok to not be ok.”
At SPC, we stand united in our pledge to prioritize mental health and well-being. As we continue our journey, let us remember that every conversation, every gesture of kindness, and every act of support can make a meaningful difference in someone’s life. Together, let’s break the silence and create a brighter, more inclusive future for mental health awareness.
Remember, it’s okay not to be okay, and seeking help is a sign of strength, not weakness. Let’s keep the conversation going, today and every day.
