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 - and the LVCU is on board.
The management team at Lake View Credit Union has provided each staff member with a 'Bell Day' over the next three weeks; a paid day to take some time for self-care.
"We encourage everyone to make time for self-care activities and reach out to those in your life to help end the stigma of mental health."
In a recent survey conducted by Nielsen Consumer Insights, 83% of Canadians now say they are comfortable speaking with others about mental health, compared to only 42% in 2012.
This year’s Bell Let’s Talk Day campaign shines a light on the actions that we can all take, because now more than ever, mental health matters. Whether you’re staying virtually connected with a family member, working directly with patients in recovery, investing in access to care or even just taking care of your own mental health, every Canadian can play a part in their communities, workplaces, schools and at home. Bell Let's Talk Day goes Jan. 28, 2021.
