Since 2010, Bell Let’s Talk has helped open the floodgates of conversation about mental health. Leading up to and on Bell Let’s Talk Day, January 31, we are showcasing free docs that aim to break the stigma around mental illness.

Series in partnership with Bell Let’s Talk and Workman Arts.

In recognition of the potentially triggering content of the participating films, supportive counsellors will be present at each screening.

WED, JAN 17, 6:30 PM


Suicide touches many of our lives and yet our society has so much trouble understanding it. The S Word seeks to move the conversation forward by engaging with those coping with loss and grappling head-on with suicide in all its complexity.

WED, JAN 24 – 6:30 PM


Filmmaker Kalina Bertin bravely turns the camera on her own household to find answers for her siblings’ mental health issues. An assembly of home movies, interviews and observations, Manic is an urgent and compelling plunge into a family’s troubling personal history and the intangible ties that bind us.

WED, JAN 31 – 6:30 PM


Celebrated athletes open up to TSN Broadcaster and Off the Record host Michael Landsberg about their personal battles with depression and their stories of perseverance. While facing his own mental health challenges, Landsberg brings insight and intelligence to an issue that often lives in the shadows of the professional sports world.

Join the conversation at our post-screening Q&A’s featuring guest moderators, panellists and special guests.

Tickets: FREE (maximum of two per person)
