In the announcement that Bell Let’s Talk Day will be held on January 28th, Mirko Bibic emphasized the increased importance of mental health during the pandemic. Bell will also be announcing both the launch of the 2021 Bell Let’s Talk Community Fund, which provides grants for local and grassroots mental health initiatives, and more recipients of the new Bell Let’s Talk Diversity Fund, which supports the mental health and well-being of BIPOC communities across Canada.

“Now more than ever, every action counts in moving Canada’s mental health forward. The multiple and unprecedented impacts of the last year have underscored the need to address mental illness in new ways as well as the important role we can all play in putting the focus on mental health.”

Mirko Bibic, President and CEO of Bell Canada and BCE
