Justin Trudeau and the Liberal team know that there is no health without mental health, and that’s why we’ve committed to set national standards for access to mental health services.
Today, Canadians from coast to coast to coast are taking to Twitter and other social media to fight the stigma surrounding mental illness and help create positive change in the conversation around mental health for Bell Let’s Talk Day.
Justin Trudeau and the Liberal team know that there is no health without mental health, and that’s why we’ve committed to set national standards for access to mental health services — because Canadians should be able to get fast access to the support they need when they need it.
See what the Liberal team is saying on this #BellLetsTalk Day:
It’s the 10th year of #BellLetsTalk and, while we’ve come a long way from where the conversation on mental health started, there’s still more work to do to end stigma & make sure Canadians can get the support they need. So let’s keep talking, Canada!

“Let’s support one another and be courageous and vulnerable in sharing our stories. By doing that, we can save lives.”
Sophie Grégoire Trudeau
“Initiatives like Bell Let’s Talk Day remind us to tell our family, friends, colleagues, and neighbours: you are not alone. We need to support each other, and change the conversation around mental health. Today and every day, let’s be there for one another.”
“Asking for help can be the bravest and most important thing you’ll ever do.”
“We can all help fight the stigma around mental health. Pay attention to the words you use, educate yourself, be kind, listen, and start a dialogue (not a debate) about mental illness.”
Adam van Koeverden
“No Canadian should go without the comprehensive mental health support they need.”
“Mental health matters, and people struggling with mental health matter. As a government we must ensure our communities can be there for Canadians and as individuals, we must make it okay for anyone to ask for help.”
“We need to work together to reduce the stigma around mental illness. No matter your age, culture, gender, or sexual orientation: you are important and loved just the way you are.”
