Wednesday was Bell Let's Talk Day in support of those struggling with mental illness. For every call or text on Bell lines, Bell donated 5 cents. Doesn't sound like much does it? Well, the grand total was $6,585,250 with the funds going to Community Fund Grants, Children and Youth Programs, Aboriginal Communities and Military Families and a host of individual organisations.
Congratulations and mega thanks to Bell and all those who participated.
It's not easy to struggle with a disease that has so many social stigma's attached to it. Those who fight the good fight every single day are my Today's Heroes. One day we will accept that the brain, just like the body, can be ill and there is no shame in it.
