Every Action Counts

Bell Let’s Talk Day is Wednesday, January 26, 2022 | version française

Now more than ever, every action counts. On Bell Let’s Talk Day, Bell will donate more towards mental health initiatives in Canada by contributing 5¢ for every applicable text, call, tweet or TikTok video using #BellLetsTalk, social media video view and use of our Facebook frame or Snapchat filter.

What is Bell Let’s Talk?

Bell Let’s Talk is a multi-year charitable program dedicated to the promotion and support of mental health across Canada. Since 2010, Bell has committed more than $100 million to support a wide range of mental health organizations, large and small, from coast to coast focusing on anti-stigma, care and access, workplace mental health and research.


Want to join in to help create positive change, but don’t know how? It’s all about having the right tools to join the conversation and help create positive change. The Bell Let’s Talk Toolkit consists of simple everyday tools that can be used to take action to support mental health, including a conversation guide, workplace activities and social media images.

To help you spread the word about mental health, we’ve created a toolkit that includes a conversation guide and helpful templates for use in schools, communities, and workplaces.


Not sure where to go to find help or who to turn to? Consulting with your healthcare provider or another trusted professional is always a great start. You can also refer to our list of organizations with helpful resources.

This year’s theme, Our actions, a + in their success highlights the diversity of actors and tangible gestures which can have a positive impact on a youth’s determination, perseverance and school success throughout his or her life.  Recognizing the power each and every one of us possess to make a difference in the effort to promote school perseverance and educational success, the campaign aims to celebrate all of the different actions, people, organizations, activities and projects that are a + in youth’s successes.

Hooked on School Days 2019

Looking for a way to incorporate this year’s Hooked on School Days into your curriculum? Check these available resources! Try these activity ideas.

A+ School Perseverance Sticky Notes | Wall Mural

Use sticky notes or ask The Learning Exchange for some A+ postcards.

Ask students to think about:  School perseverance is
Have the students write their ideas and thoughts on sticky notes to create a wall mural (add notes to the designated area in the school).

A+ Photo

After creating sticky notes for the wall, you can also take pictures of students with their papers. The photo can be published on social media, or even added to the school wall mural. #HookedonSchoolDaysVimont

My qualities, my +’s

Enlarge and print the large plus sign made up of small +’s. Have students write things like the qualities they are most proud of or the challenges they have overcome inside the small +’s.

This year, I will make a gesture.

Have students publish a post to social media in support of school perseverance and Hooked on School Days, mentioning goals, a gesture or action they will make this year. #HookedonSchoolDaysVimont

Student Certificates

Give perseverance certificates to your students to recognize their efforts. The Learning Exchange has

All the +’s around me

Enlarge and print the large plus sign made up of small +’s. Have students write the names of the people who make them feel good at school and help them learn, along with a quality of that person in 1, 2, 3, or 5 plus signs. Display them all together on the school wall mural.

Downloadable materials :


Thanks for being my +

Have students write a letter or make a note their parents, family member, instructor, teacher, or tutor for a gesture that made them feel good.

The quality I like about you

Every student is given a “+”. Have them write the name of a friend on it, along with a quality they appreciate about that person. The +’s can then added to the school wall mural of the class’s qualities.

Tree of Perseverance

This is an opportunity to help your students understand that there’s no shame in admitting they have trouble at school. The important thing is to learn and, with the support of your friends and family, to overcome challenges.

Draw a large tree on the board with three branches but no leaves. Introduce it as the tree of perseverance. Explain that the leaves grow when they, the students, make an effort to succeed, with the help of their friends and family.

Have the students identify the challenges they face at school. These challenges may involve learning, but they may also be on the social or family level. Have each student draw 15 leaves (or use those to be cut out provided in this file).

Symbolism of the Hooked on School Days ribbon

TLE and CDC Vimont have pins, ribbons, postcards, posters and certificates available. Ask Darlene or Karen!

The green and white ribbon symbolizes a value, a commitment to staying in school. Green stands for youth and hope. It represents young people, who need to be recognized and acknowledged in order to stay in school. White, a blend of all colours, represents the community which contributes to the development of its young people. The intertwining of the two ribbons illustrates the ties that unite young people and the community. The loop, open‐ended, holds the promise of a better future.

Wearing the Hooked on School ribbon shows your commitment to support young people in their efforts and in their educational success.
