Bell Let's Talk Day 2024

The Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board is a proud supporter of Bell Let’s Talk, a national awareness campaign dedicated to the promotion and support of mental health across Canada. Bell Let’s Talk promotes awareness, acceptance and action with a strategy built on anti-stigma, care and access, research, and workplace leadership.

Bell Let's Talk Day takes place on Wednesday January 24, 2024. While the goal is to keep the conversation about mental health going all year long, January 24th marks the start of the campaign.

As a Catholic school community and in support of the Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board Mental Health and Addictions Strategy, we are committed to fostering safe and inclusive learning environments, which includes addressing mental health and wellness.

Bell Let’s Talk Day is a time to acknowledge that many students are struggling with challenging emotions in response to personal and societal events. It also provides another opportunity for our youth to hear messages that validate their varied and unique experiences and to be shown caring support. The HWCDSB focuses on creating awareness of supportive measures, building resiliency, and encouraging access to appropriate, culturally responsive supports.

Staff, students, and parents are encouraged to join the conversation through starting a conversation about mental health.

Consider leading a conversation about mental health in your school through using the Bell Let’s Talk Tool for Teachers and Students, which include the following resources:
· Bell Let’s Talk Kindness Box
· Bell Let’s Talk Facebook and Twitter Cover Photos
· Bell Let’s Talk Self-Care Activity
· Bell Let’s Talk Mental Health Pocketbook

Catholic mental health resources are available:

Let’s get the conversation started!
