The Bell Let’s Talk Campaign Gains Momentum Thanks To Celebrities

Bell is a communications company that runs an annual charity event called the Let’s Talk Campaign. The goal of the campaign is to raise awareness for and also to break the stigma that surrounds mental health issues. People are often wary to become involved in causes related to mental health because they often don’t understand it or have never experienced mental health issues for themselves. The Bell Let’s Talk Campaigns is aiming to change that. For every call, text or social media mention of the campaign, Bell is donating five cents to the cause. By some estimates the online campaign has already raised more than six million dollars for the cause. This money will be used in a variety of ways. First and foremost it will be used to fund campaigns which destigmatize mental health issues by better educating the general public about what causes mental health issues, ways that it can be treated, and suggestions on how you can best help someone that you may know who has a mental illness. One way that this campaign has gained so much traction is with some help from some of the biggest celebrities and some of the most prominent public figures. Singers such as Celine Dion and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau have voiced their support for the campaign making it quickly spread through social media and from person to person alike. More celebrities can follow in their footsteps to use their fame to bring light to the many great charities and campaigns that are improving our world each and every day.
