This information is being shared from the Canadian Mental Health Association, as the District recognizes the impacts of COVID-19 pandemic on residents:
Bell Let’s Talk launched in 2010 with a focus on building awareness, acceptance and action in mental health. Since then Canadians have taken the conversation around mental health to remarkable heights, making it clear that mental health matters.
In a recent survey conducted by Nielsen Consumer Insights in 2019, 84% of Canadians now say they are comfortable speaking with others about mental health, compared to only 42% in 2012. It’s time to build on that increased awareness and acceptance and put a greater focus on action to create positive change in our schools, workplaces, and communities.
With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, when it comes to mental health, now more than ever, every action counts.
