The CCH's child and youth mental health services donated door prizes, snacks and pizza. "Thank you everyone for embracing those who struggle with mental illness, for helping to change attitudes and fight the stigma, and for helping drive Bell's donations to mental health by making your voice heard", says Mary Deacon, Chair of Bell Let's Talk, in a news release.

"Be prepared to engaged with people when we may see signs of a person having mental health struggles and not to be afraid of this sort of thing".

"Organizations aim to foster a psychologically safe and supportive culture, which is why HR leaders should take every opportunity to bring the conversation about mental health in the workplace to the forefront". "We hold conferences, information sessions, lunch sessions, so all our employees understand how to deal with this issue, which is different than some other illnessess".

The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) recognizes that one in five Canadians will suffer from a mental illness at some point in their lives.
