THERE’S BEEN A LOT OF MENTAL HEALTH TALK this week, and that ‘s great.
Mental health comes into focus this time of year, particularly because research has shown it’s a struggle for many in January and February.
That led Bell to create Let’s Talk day, a campaign that encourages people not to bury their mental health struggles inside, but to bring them into the open.
As altruistic as that sounds, there is good reason to be cynical about this campaign.
