I wrote a post on my other blog about Bell Let’s Talk. You can find it here.
Below is a short snippet:
I like the idea behind Bell Let’s Talk and everything that the day stands for. I completely support ending the stigma surrounding mental health. And I have to commend Bell for all they’ve done, all they are currently doing, and all the company will do in the future.
What I don’t like is that it’s easy to forget about mental health every other day of the year, especially if you aren’t directly affected by it. It’s easy to perpetuate the stereotypes, to prolong the stigma.
That’s because it’s not as easy to be aware, to be understanding, and to be helpful.
I still have more to say.
I hope conversations start and continue because of today. But regardless of whether or not it’s Bell Let’s Talk, regardless of what’s happening in the world, I want conversations to start and continue every day.
So please start the conversation. And don’t let it stop.
