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

~ Take hold of your health
On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month Canadians from sea to sea to sea are invited to take “A Pittance of Time” to reflect on what it means to be Canadian: to take a moment in quiet reverence no matter where they are and experience deep emotional heartfelt gratitude for their individuality, community, culture, safety, peace and all of the freedoms that we enjoy in Canadian life.
The song “A Pittance of Time” was inspired and composed by Terry Kelly in 1999 as a result of an incident in a drug store – when a man chose not to join other customers who were taking two minutes of silence in honour of our veterans. As Terry’s surrogate parents at the (residential) Halifax School for the Blind, were retired military women and men, Terry was determined to commit future energies towards creating a greater awareness of the sacrifices made to provide freedom and a more comfortable life for each of us!
