One in five Canadians will experience a mental health issue or mental illness in any given year. But we all have mental health that we need to look after. All five in five of us.
For 10 years, Canadians and people around the globe have joined in the world’s largest conversation around mental health on Bell Let’s Talk Day. Together we have taken big steps to reduce stigma and normalize conversations about mental health.
Although we’ve made great strides, there is still work to be done to ensure all Canadians get the mental health support they need. This year, on Bell Let’s Talk Day, everyone is encouraged to share the actions, large and small, that they are taking to improve mental health in Canada.
Join us in this nationwide conversation about mental health.
The Raw Carrot’s core mission is to create positive change for people with disAbilities – many of whom have been impacted by mental health issues. Your soup purchases have enabled The Raw Carrot to positively impact the lives of 27 people this year through the dignity of work. We are grateful and in awe of the generous donations we have experienced in our communities from individuals and organizations just like you. Special thanks to Cowan Insurance for their recent generous donation to provide Mental Health First Aid training to ALL staff and kitchen Managers at ALL locations. This donation will be used specifically for all of us to increase our coping (and thriving) strategies and know how to help one another through times of stress. Thank you Cowan Insurance for contributing to a positive change.
When it comes to mental health, every action counts.
