Everyone knows that @Bell Canada’s #BellLetsTalk campaign has been raising money for mental health since 2011.

What few people know is that Bell has been destroying mental health conditions in prisons since 2013.

Bell, let’s talk about the Prison Phone Contract.
@Bell In 2013, @Bell and the Ministry of Correctional Services signed a contract giving Bell control over the phones in Ontario prisons. The contract expires around the end of this month. Though the Ministry and Bell work hard to cover up the details, here’s what we know so far:
@Bell -Every call someone makes from a prison is a collect call. This means the person on the other end has to pay $1/minute, and that’s local – according to CBC, a long-distance call can be $25 for 20 minutes. The cost adds up quickly.…

#BellLetsTalk is an annual mental health fundraiser in Canada.

Grad school, academia, fieldwork, resource extraction, disaster prep & response, journalism, filming crunch, freelancing — all my industries & areas of expertise are ones with a huge toll on mental health.
It’s a fundamental credo of disaster response that you need to take care of yourself before assisting others.

If you try to power through, you’re setting yourself up to break & need rescue, making the situation harder & more dangerous.

That includes mental health. #BellLetsTalk

For #BellLetsTalk day, #LetsTalk about Canadian photographers who experienced traumatic events while documenting the #FWW and #SWW 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼
(Photograph is: Mud and barbed wire through which the Canadians advanced during the Battle of Passchendaele. W. Rider-Rider, November 1917, LAC MIKAN 3194807).
Canada's earliest #FWW photographer, Harry Knobel, experienced stress during the first months of the war. He was a member of the 1st Canadian Contingent whose medical records note that he began experiencing “neurasthenia” or “trench fever” as early as November 1915.

It's #BellLetsTalk and for so many who struggle with #mentalhealth concerns, this day raises awareness and builds a culture of #compassion. Let's never again hear someone say, “just snap out of it” or “it’s all in your head.” @Bell_LetsTalk
Each of us may have different levels of understanding when it comes to #mentalhealth. Mental health is neutral. It’s not bad or good. It’s not necessarily positive or negative. It just is. #BellLetsTalk
A tooth ache will put you in the dentist’s chair. The flu is a reason to see the doctor. There’s no shame. Seeking help for #mentalhealth support must also be a safe experience. There's simply no other choice when your mental health is cast in shadow. #BellLetsTalk #EndTheStigma

CW: suicide

Tomorrow is #BellLetsTalk Day, but I've got a bit of time so I'm going to share my story now.

Last week, a colleague phoned 911 because I disclosed that I was struggling with suicidal ideation. This is not a safe or helpful action for marginalized folks in crisis.
After I posted on Facebook about what had happened, a friend reached out and asked what you *should* do if you know someone in crisis, if not phone 911?

So let's break this down a bit.
What happened to me last week highlighted the fact that there's a mismatch between how people living on the margins of society experience civil authorities, versus how people living more normative lives experience them.

Riuh pula pasal BTS dalam Twitterjaya sejak akhir-akhir ini.

Sebuah kumpulan K-Pop yang disukai ramai remaja, juga ramai yang tak suka.


Lebih tertarik dengan isu di sebalik BTS, apa yang mereka buat untuk raise awareness pasal Mental Health kat Korea.

Ini ialah thread.

Aku bukan peminat K-Pop dan aku tak minat K-Drama sebab banyak sangat cinta.

Tapi thread kali ini, aku nak jadi objektif dan lebih fokus pada usaha BTS dalam kesedaran kesihatan mental yang patut ramai ambil contoh.

Bukan sekadar tolak sebab "Alaaa.. K-Pop..."
Sebelum ini pernah kecoh seorang penyanyi nama Kim Jong-hyun yang suicide sebab Depression.

Walaupun dia kaya, berjaya dan terkenal, ini bukti yang penyakit mental ini attack tanpa kira sesiapa.

It's an illness, and like any kind of illness, it needs treatment and support.

As a lot of you know, I struggle with bipolar disorder. This time last year, some of y'all might remember me deleting my Twitter account for a few weeks. I was in a dark place and wasn't sure I was going to make it. #BellLetsTalk
The support from a lot of you was a big reason I was able to persevere and get through. The struggle to get through even basic functions of the day was crippling and made going to the rink every day a serious challenge. #BellLetsTalk
Mental health issues have always carried a particular stigma and it's long past time that ends. We're all in this together and the sooner we can talk about it and accept the reality of what is and isn't, the better off we'll be. #BellLetsTalk

i think i end up saying some permutation of this every year, but

if you truly want to be an ally to those struggling with mental health concerns, you should talk too.

and notice the ways in which you talk about mental illness.

i hate that #BellLetsTalk becomes a, "hey folks who are already hurting, please expose your hurt or you will suffer f o r e v e r" thing

is it good to reach out to someone if you need help? YES absolutely.

here are some things i'd like to share with folks who want to be allies:
-stop assuming evil people are crazy, and stop calling people crazy because they've done something evil.

this is a big one.

maybe the evil person really does have mental health issues. whatever. when that's the first thing you say about evil...we notice.
