A VOICE FOR MENTAL HEALTH

RYU TEAM / Jan 29, 2019

Bell Let’s Talk Day, which started in September 2010, kick-started a new and open conversation surrounding Canada’s mental health. Bell’s total donation towards mental health programs across Canada total $93,423,628.80 and they’re well on their way to the $100 million mark.

We stand with Bell, as we are both raising awareness, opening lines of communication and demystifying the stigma surrounding mental health. We’re all fighting battles others know nothing about, which is why RYU’s One More Rep initiative was created.

For this year’s Bell Let’s Talk Day on January 30th, Bell will donate more towards mental health initiatives in Canada by contributing 5 cents for every applicable text, call, tweet, social media video view, use of Facebook frame or Snapchat filter.

Let’s all get social and continue the conversation.
