Five simple ways to help end stigma – Bell Let’s Talk

Each year in Canada one in five individuals experiences a mental illness.

We can all play a role in ending the stigma around mental illness.

  1. Language matters – pay attention to the words you use about mental illness

  2. Educate yourself – learn, know and talk more, understand the signs

  3. Be kind – small acts of kindness speak a lot

  4. Listen and ask – sometimes it’s best to just listen

  5. Talk about it – start a dialogue, break the silence
