Several campuses in the Calgary region will be hosting Bell Let’s Talk Day initiatives on January 29th.

We’re sharing these with you to celebrate their work and to inspire the sharing of ideas. Together, these campuses will be using #YYCPSILetsTalk on their communication platforms to promote Bell Let’s Talk Day in the Calgary Region. They will also be presenting the following events:

MOVIES FOR MENTAL HEALTH WORKSHOP with Art With Impact at Bow Valley College from 11am-1pm. Open to post-secondary students from any campus. Lunch will be provided and registration is required.

BELL LET’S TALK DAY @ SAIT, 11-1pm at 3 campus locations. Students at SAIT can take part in in Bell Let’s Talk Day by getting involved in fun games and competitions to win a Bell Let’s Talk toque. They can also fill in the speech bubbles which will be posted around campus. They will be encouraged to use social media hashtags to raise awareness and funds.
In collaboration with Bow Valley College, students at SAIT residence will be invited to participate in “Movies for Mental Health” at BVC, as many BVC students are residents at SAIT.

MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS @ MRU: In addition to a Bell Let’s Talk Fair on campus, MRU will also be highlighting our ‘Mental Health Matters’ campaign which includes a mental health video and a faculty and staff toolkit for supporting mental health on campus. 

BELL LET’S TALK DAY @ UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY: Join the conversation at the University of Calgary and help end the stigma of mental illness. Post on social media using #BellLetsTalk or get engaged in activities on campus. Drop by the Taylor Family Digital Library (11 a.m. – 7 p.m.) and Foothills campus (8:30 a.m. – 2 p.m.) to leave a positive message about mental health, learn about on-campus resources, and snag free swag.

BELL LETS TALK DAY @ KEYANO COLLEGE: Bell Let’s Talk day is part of a week long series of events, starting with Get Loud for Mental Health. On Bell Let’s Talk Day we will be raising the Bell Let’s Talk flag, and we have invited our community partners to the campus to help us raise awareness. Live interviews with students and faculty will be shared on social media. On the following day we have Art With Impact here with movies for mental health, which will include a panel of community partners and students.
