Dawn Boylan, the Bell Aliant Senior Community Investment Manager said 210 Canadian universities and colleges are registered for the Bell Let's Talk campaign this year, with a large growth in the number of colleges from previous years.

In recognition of Bell Let's Talk Day, the Daily Commercial News and Journal of Commerce has gathered a collection of articles on mental health and construction to showcase the efforts being made by a variety of stakeholders across the country.

Tim Hortons donated coffee and muffins, Youth Wellness Hub Ontario donated prizes and Bell provided swag for the event.

Each registered school is provided with a campus toolkit, said Boylan, which includes resources for teachers and students to help them join the conversation around mental health and take part in the campaign.

Rarely interviewed about Bell's commitment to mental health (Samaritanmag has tried), in an early interview with The Globe & Mail in 2010, he told the newspaper, "What we've tried to do is come out and talk quite openly about it".

The Bell Let's Talk initiative aims to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health challenges by engaging in open conversations and treating those suffering from mental health issues as being ill, not weak. "There are wait times for some services but anybody in immediate need can get help immediately".

As a result, over 6.3 million people across Canada are said to have been supported with access to mental health care.

How will you support your employees' mental health today?

Social media feeds will be filling up today, with the #BellLetsTalk hashtag, getting the conversation started about mental health.

The CMHA accepts self-referrals for people seeking help, but Stevenson said, "We certainly encourage people to be referred by their primary care provider, just because we want to include them to the best of our ability in the care provided".

It was a first, for the Community Addiction and Mental Health Services facility on McConnell Avenue in Cornwall.

Officials say statistics show one in five Canadians will suffer from mental illness at some point in their lifetime.
