You're invited to talk, text and get engaged on social media to support mental health today for Bell Let's Talk Day.

"The stigma around mental illness is absolutely declining and Bell Let's Talk day and other mental health champions, as well as, have had an impact on that, for sure", Stevenson said.

Aulenback said Carleton's initiatives extend beyond Bell Let's Talk Day to end the stigma surrounding mental health."Whether you are a student, faculty member, or staff member, we are all affected by mental health and as a community, we are here to support each other", he said.

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". "We've always known it was there, but there was so much hesitancy to ask for help in the past and that's really changing".

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.

To date $93.4 million has been donated to mental health initiatives.

Cope took his personal connection to create a program of best practices in dealing with employee mental health issues at Bell. However, since Bell Let's Talk is a nationally recognized event, Carleton aims to support the initiative. "What we're seeing is the need for assessment and counselling, treatment and coordination with other health care providers".

An important step for people to get help for mental health issues is to encourage the conversation, Stevenson said.

"Bell Let's Talk is a great starting point", she said.

January 30 is Bell Let's Talk Day and Red Deer Public Schools is filling its social media channels with inspirational messages today in hopes of raising awareness and reducing stigma around mental health.
