Bell Let's Talk thanks community and healthcare leaders, government, unions and academia, sports organizations, media, corporations and competitors for their help in setting a new record for mental health engagement

MONTRÉAL, Feb. 1, 2018 /CNW/ - After a record Bell Let's Talk Day 2018, we thank the growing number of organizations throughout the country that stepped up to promote Canadian mental health. Bell Let's Talk Day 2018 set all new records with more than 138 million messages of support from people throughout Canada and around the world.

"All of these great organizations recognize that mental health affects us all and we thank them for lending their names and platforms to the cause," said Mary Deacon, Chair of Bell Let's Talk. "Together with millions of Canadians, we're all fighting the stigma, changing attitudes and letting those who struggle with mental illness know they're not alone."

The list of organizations involved in promoting mental health and the Bell Let's Talk campaign continues to grow each year, including community groups, students and faculty at Canadian universities and colleges, sports teams, business associations, corporations, unions, government, law enforcement, and other partners. Platforms include TV, radio, newspaper, out-of-home, digital and cinema advertising, rink boards at major sports arenas, and live and online events throughout the country promoting mental health.

We offer our sincere appreciation to all these organizations for their support of the mental health cause:
