Let's Talk - university students invited to open up about mental health issues

Let's talk about mental health Oakville Chamber of Commerce hosts Bell Let's Talk breakfast

To help support those living with mental illnesses, Bell hosts Bell Let's Talk Day, a day to openly discuss mental illnesses to put a stop to its stigma and make more people aware that it's okay to talk about it. I was touched by the support I received and struck by the number of people who came forward and told me how mental health issues have impacted their lives or those of their family and friends.

The advertising campaign was the victor of the Channel 4 Annual Diversity in Advertising Award, and was designed by Lloyds Bank and its creative agency adam&eveDDB. I know that now more than ever as people constantly bear witness to the fruits in their lives because I dared to be naked. "By raising awareness of invisible disabilities and taking action to promote healthy wellbeing, we can support our colleagues to recognise the signs and feel confident and equipped to support customers and each other".

According to their web site, it was back in September 2010 that Bell Let's Talk began a conversation about Canada's mental health.

But while it's clear the campaign has had a marked impact on community and health services, mental illness remains a highly stigmatized topic.

Mental disorders are commonly used as adjectives in a fond, but self-deprecating, manner by individuals with no clinical mental health training.

It becomes hard for a struggling individual to seek out help when the disorder they are struggling with becomes delegitimized through social talk, likening mental disorders to normative emotions and behaviours. "Grants of up to £500 are available to registered Time to Change "champions" - people who have experienced mental health problems". Not all have been complimentary but last week, Prof Gerard Hutchinson voiced his view on this and I was pleasantly surprised, humbled and really pumped by what he said. For far too long, mental health has been a taboo and Time to Talk Day is all about changing that. "We can do a lot as a friend or family member".

At Arab League, Warnings over US Cuts to UN Palestinian Refugee Agency
This decision was condemned and rejected by all Arab and Islamic countries, as well as most Western and Asian countries. State Department said it would withhold $65 million of $125 million for the U.N.

It seems like maybe the conversation is getting a little bit louder.

Talking about mental health is absolutely critical to recovery - the importance of being able to talk and be listened to without shame and the fear of being judged can not be underestimated.

The person, she said, still has the right to say they're OK but thanks for asking.

The spirit of co-operation that exists with our European partners gives us an opportunity to learn from successful approaches in other countries and I'll be using the relationships I forge with politicians across the EU to see what innovative approaches we can incorporate at home. "It's also important to understand that there are people you can talk to without any stigmas attached".
