Bell Let’s Talk is a campaign started by Bell Canada in 2010 to start a nation-wide conversational about mental health with the goal of de-stigmatizing mental illness while raising funds for mental health initiatives.
On January 31, every time you talk, text and join in on social media, Bell will donate 5¢ more to mental health initiatives.
For one day a year, Bell donates 5¢ to mental health initiatives for every text, phone call, tweet and share made by Canadians. Learn about where they donate to: https://letstalk.bell.ca/en/news/1130/bell-lets-talk-doubles-community-fund-for-grassroots-mental-health-programs
Over the last eight years, Canadians have raised $86,504,429.05 for mental health initiatives on #BellLet’sTalk Day.
The Canadian Sport Centre Manitoba and Game Plan are supporting the Bell Let’s Talk initiative by using the official hashtags #BellLetsTalk and #jointheconversation on twitter to promote the importance of mental wellness.

The Canadian Sport Centre Manitoba acknowledges that our offices are situated on Treaty 1 Land, the original lands of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Ojibway-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation.
The Treaties made on these territories are respected by all those who work at CSCM. We acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past that were made. In a spirit of collaboration and reconciliation, we dedicate ourselves to continually move forward in partnership with Indigenous communities for ongoing education and learning.
We understand that acknowledging this truth, though important, is only a small part in cultivating the strong relationships we strive to build and maintain with Indigenous communities. We continue to work towards this, with particular attention being paid to the sport specific calls to action #87-91 from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
We recognize we are not the first to live on this land, and thank these Nations for allowing us access to their land and water.
