Join the UW Warriors and nearly 200 other universities and colleges from across Canada to participate in Bell Let's Talk Day on January 28, 2021. Although this year’s initiative will look much different than previous years, we hope you are interested in collaborating on the day and continuing the conversation with your networks.
The current COVID-19 situation can have an impact on your mental health. Practicing physical distancing makes it even more important that we make an extra effort to remain emotionally connected. Finding ways to stay connected with friends, family and loved ones will support good mental health and well-being.
Consider finding new ways to practice self-care and stay connected, such as reading with a virtual book club, having a video call over dinner, texting with friends or streaming a group fitness class. These are just some of the things that could support good mental well-being.
Maintaining good mental and physical health will help ensure we get through this together. Please refer to the Get Help page for other mental health resources. UW employees are also eligible for help through the Employee Family Assistance Program.
In March 2020, Bell announced the extension of the Bell Let’s Talk mental health initiative for a further 5 years and an increase in Bell’s total funding commitment for Canadian mental health to at least $155 million.
On Bell Let’s Talk Day, let’s make every one of these actions count: https://letstalk.bell.ca/en/bell-lets-talk-day
