Healthy Minds Canada/Bell Let’s Talk 2016 Campaign

THANK YOU!

BLT name dropping image (2) On January 27, 2016, Bell ran its 6th Bell Let’s Talk campaign, and for the 3rd year in a row, Healthy Minds Canada played a huge role! Thanks to Rebecca Wagner, National Campaign Manager, for leading an awesome group of 12 Team Leaders!  Beginning September 2015, Rebecca recruited and motivated the Team Leaders, who, in turn, built amazing teams of hundreds of mental health advocates from across Canada. Together, this dedicated team, consisting entirely of volunteers, took to Twitter throughout December and January to promote awareness of mental health challenges and resources and to create a digital support system for those suffering. Just after midnight January 26th Newfoundland time, this team kicked into high gear until the end of Bell Let’s Talk Day at 11:59pm PST (3am EST!), and throughout that time, the HMC Twitter account was on fire with the @Healthy_Minds handle and the #BellLetsTalk hashtag! So THANK YOU for talking about mental health!  Whether by text or phone on the Bell network, by Twitter using the hashtag #BellLetsTalk, or on Facebook by sharing the Howie Mandel image, Bell broke last year’s record of over 100 million messages and posts before the day even ended!

The final results from Bell are in!

Thanks to your support, Bell saw a record 125,915,295 calls, texts, tweets and shares on Bell Let’s Talk Day.

That means an additional $6,295,764.75 will be donated to mental health initiatives across Canada.

Incredible work everyone!
