One of the best way to rise above depression is by talking about it. She did and become a spokesperson for Bell Canada to bring awareness and help fight stigma.
Competition does not frighten her but depression does when it comes.
She has taken the conversation further to communities by cycling 12,000 km across Canada and share her journey with depression to other Canadians that they are not alone.
Her goal is to turn mental illness to mental wellness.
On January 28, Bell Canada will donate five cents more to Canadian mental health programs for every text or tweet message, wireless and long distance call made by Bell Canada and Bell Aliant customers. (Note that I am promoting mental wellness and not Bell Canada.)
Everytime we speak about this disease, we open the door of hope wider and the door of shame closes.
These are the five simple ways to help end the stigma about mental illness provided by Bell Canada:
- Language Matters
- Educate Yourself
- Be Kind
- Listen and Ask
- Talk About It
Come and join the conversation. Tell us what you do for your mental wellness.
