Bell Let’s Talk announces program to support 5 organizations delivering mental health support on the front lines of Canadian communities and to kids and families with remote tools in a time of physical and social distancing.

“Strongest Families Institute is grateful to Bell Let’s Talk for its generous gift. Our distance services remain available to help children, youth, adults and families who are struggling with mental health problems such as anxiety, depression and behavioural challenges. This funding will increase our telephone support work force, including help for those in rural or under-resourced communities and fund enhancements to process increased demands for service,” said Dr. Patricia Lingley-Pottie, President and CEO, Strongest Families Institute. “With this donation we can help more Canadians, promote good mental health and equip people with valuable skills to improve quality of life during these challenging times.”
