Since 2010, Bell has been working to help increase awareness about mental health and mental illness with the company’s Bell Let's Talk Day on Jan. 26.
On this date, for every applicable text, local or long-distance call, tweet or TikTok video using #BellLetsTalk, Bell donates 5 cents to Canadian mental health programs.
