The Bell Let’s Talk funding of $500,000 for each university will help expand existing mental health programs and develop additional services that will be accessible to more students.

« These mental health support programs at Université de Montréal and McGill will help students deal with difficult situations in a way that does not interfere with their studies, » said Martine Turcotte, Vice Chair, Québec, for Bell. « Most people affected by mental health issues live in silence for fear of being judged or rejected because of the stigma that still surrounds mental illness. Improving access to mental health care and talking openly about the need for these services are priorities for Bell Let’s Talk. »
