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