On January 30th RRC will be observing Bell Let’s Talk Day with a day full of supportive conversations and stigma-busting activities.
We know that each year one in five Canadians will experience mental illness. One of the biggest hurdles for anyone suffering from mental illness is overcoming the stigma. It is the number one reason why two-thirds of those living with mental illness do not seek help. So, get involved and help bring positive change.
