The Canadian Olympic Committee is also trying to shed some light on the topic as they have created a short documentary on Olympic diver Francois Imbeau-Dulac and his battle with mental health as well as a write-up on Olympic soccer player Stephane Labbe.

She added at the college they are continuously trying to engage in conversation about mental health with students on how to be more resilient with the struggles they may face and to give them that support they need.

According to a media release by Bell Canada, events at more than 200 Canadian post-secondary schools are taking place to promote mental health.

How will you support your employees' mental health today?

There are significant consequences to the public misconceptions and fears.

Gruchy says people with severe mental illness including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and anorexia, get forgotten and lost in the general noise.

Bell's total funding commitment to mental health is set to top $100 million, as workers are encouraged to Tweet, Snapchat and Facebook their mental health stories and support. The worst part is it's different every day and for everyone so no one knows or can understand how you feel, " she posted on Twitter and Instagram on December 27, 2018.

Bell says that as a result, large and small institutions and organizations in every region of the country received new funding for access, care and research from Bell Let's Talk and from governments and corporations that joined the cause.

A simple act of kindness can make a huge difference. Most people with mental health issues can and do recover, but talking about it is an important first step.

"Be prepared to engaged with people when we may see signs of a person having mental health struggles and not to be afraid of this sort of thing".

Shelby Meyer, vice president external for the Medicine Hat College Students' Association, stands next to a display for Bell Let's Talk on Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2019.

One day a year, Bell pledges to donate $0.05 to Canadian mental health initiatives for every text message sent on Bell's network, every tweet and retweet with the hashtag #BellLetsTalk and every view of the "Bell Let's Talk" official video on social media.
