U of S joins the conversation for Bell Let’s Talk Day 2020
On Wednesday January 29th, the University of Sudbury was one of 227 Canadian post-secondary institutions leading mental health conversations with Bell Let's Talk. This year marks the 10th anniversary of this initiative which aims to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health, and taking action to create positive change. Students from the University of Sudbury Residence gathered in the main lobby with members from BounceBack Ontario, a free skill- building program managed by the Canadian Mental Health Association. Many other students and staff also showed their support by signing the banner, sharing positive messages, and listing tips on ‘conversation bubble’ sheets that were posted in the main entrance. Participants were offered blue Bell Let’s Talk toques, among other items.
$7,719,371 was the grand total raised on the national Bell Let's Talk Day 2020, and we are proud to have contributed and encouraged important dialogue on the subject of mental health and awareness. For more information, you can visit the Bell website: https://letstalk.bell.ca/en/
Thank you to staff and students from the University of Sudbury Residence for coordinating this annual event, and to everyone who participated and supported the cause!
