LET’S TALK!

LET’S TALK

All across Canada we have been seeing commercials with just this logo since right after Christmas.

I’m pretty proud of this campaign and I’m pretty proud of the company promoting it’s label.

Why you ask?

1. Because it’s being promoted by one of our oldest and dearest company’s of my country Canada. And that company is Bell Canada.

2. Because they are supporting a truly worthy cause. A cause that I suffer from daily and recently I’m sad to report my oldest daughter is now batteling from ūüė¶

And that is mental health disorders, sadly this is the disease that you don’t always physically see and is often hidden by us with this disease because we are ashamed and sadly because that is what society has taught us is the way to deal with it.

Today, January 28th, 2014, I ask ¬†my fellow Canadian’s, American’s and my blogging friends, ¬†please, please join me and¬†LET”S TALK,,let’s get the word out there, let us let people know that we are suffering, and that we are people that just need to be heard and listened too and above all that we can be helped we just need a little more support and a little more understanding.

That is all we ask for.

Here is how we can do this.

In Canada with this¬†LET’S TALK¬†inititive it’s easy with every text message, every mobile/long distance call made, tweet with the hashtag #BellLetsTalk,and every Facebook share with the Let’s Talk Image is done 5 cent’s will be donated. I don’t know about you but that’s alot of money that can be raised. You don’t have to be a Bell subscriber,,so please, please do it.

In America,,please donate to your local mental health society’s , your hospital’s, suicide prevention centres etc.

And my blogging community please reblog this post and other’s supporting our disease and our cause.

Here are some commercial’s from my cause, these truly show how I feel when I’m feeling at my worst.

You want to go to work, you need to be at work, people are counting on you to be at work,,BUT YOU JUST CAN’T DO IT. The result is you feel guilty, ashamed and just horrible.

You feel you have no friends, you feel alone, and unloved. Even tho your friends are there and trying to reach out to you. You still feel unworthy, useless and alone.

There’s a lot of french in this one but it’s worth the watch and ¬†listen too:¬†

Yes, even some of your country’s treasure’s, people that you would never ever think suffer from depression. It is truly a silent disease.

Please my friends, if it’s the only thing I ever ask, please hear us and support us.

Thank you, xo

    All of us know someone that has issues. It;s an AT&T gimmick, but it’s also an easy way to help.

    That’s a good initiative. Here in the UK, we have charities, including one for people with mental health issues, called MIND. Most big charities have high street shops selling donated second hand stuff. They’re staffed by volunteers, mostly. MIND has one on my High Street and it’s quite close so I often buy stuff there. I know the manageress there well now! Are there not shops like this in Canada? It’s such a good idea and it’s also a place to TALK. Ann

      Hi, sorry it took so long for me to respond I have been working my butt off for the last week, but it’s slowing down so now I will be able to play here more often.
      Yes, we do have what you call charitie shops here but usually they use the donated funds for the homeless, and women’s shelters. Yes,,it is a good idea and would be a great place to meet and talk!
