Bell Let’s Talk (#BellLetsTalk) is making it easy to raise money in support of Canadian mental health programs. It’s important to me because I suffer from a social anxiety disorder. But also, because I know someone who suffers from a mental health disorder.
This was a really hard video for me to film, and after taking a year off of YouTube, it made me realize how important it is to talk about these stigmatized issues. There are people all around us who are suffering from some sort of disorder in silence. Why? Because society keeps portraying having these mental health problems as exactly that — problems.
In hopes of changing that mindset, I along with several other influencers online, have created videos and blog posts to share our experience and/or opinions regarding this world issue.
To anyone who is an advocate for mental health issues and depression, seeking to end the stigma and open discussion – thank you. Youve helped give me the courage and ability to openly talk about problems and seek help. #BellLetsTalk works
