CFN CEO Joins Bell's Let's Talk Campaign

Bell's Let's Talk campaign is underway for 2017 and once again the initiative seeks to help end the stigma around mental illness. This year Centre for Newcomers CEO Anila Lee Yuen sat down with CFN productions to talk about her own journey through mental illness and the importance of overall mental health awareness in Canada.

It’s a fact, one in five Canadians will suffer from mental illness at some point in their lifetime. One of the biggest hurdles for anyone suffering from mental illness is overcoming the stigma attached to it. The annual Bell Let’s Talk awareness campaign and Day is driving the national conversation to help reduce this stigma and promote awareness and understanding and talking is an important first step towards lasting change. Beyond the campaign itself, for every text, call, tweet, Instagram post, Facebook video view and Snapchat geofilter used on Bell Let’s Talk Day on January 25th, Bell will donate 5¢ more to mental health initiatives across Canada. CFN both congratulates and thanks Bell for this wonderful initiative that has now been up and running since 2010. For more information on Bell's Let's Talk Campaign please visit there website,
