"Each of these fantastic organizations is stepping up to highlight mental health and Bell Let's Talk Day while also taking action to make a difference within their own organizations and communities," said Mary Deacon, Chair of Bell Let's Talk. "We thank them all sincerely for their engagement and support – now more than ever as we confront the ongoing mental health impacts of these challenging times."
The list of organizations supporting Bell Let's Talk Day includes media creators and distributors, social media platforms, governments, the military, unions, sports teams and athletic organizations, festivals, associations, corporations and competitors.
