The Newmarket resident announced last October she was withdrawing from competition, revealing that she had been struggling with her mental health.

A search filter on "the impact" page for where the funds go displays an extensive list of recipients (by year, region, type).

"As first responders we are here to tell you it affects us too".

In honour of mental health awareness today, HRD Canada caught up with Kim Tabac, chief people officer at League - who revealed how you can get involved in health and safety initiatives.

"Bell Let's Talk Day has quickly grown into the biggest conversation about mental health anywhere and we hope you'll join in to let those who struggle know they've got your support".

As a result, over 6.3 million people across Canada are said to have been supported with access to mental health care. One of Bell's goals in 2019 is to break the $100 million all-time donation mark.

Breanne Mellen of the CMHA says that for Let's Talk Day, they provided pamphlets to the Medicine Hat College Students' Association to inform students about the services available to them in the community, in addition to wellness tips.

The electric Tesla Semi could also be here in 2020, after Tesla itself uses the electric trucks for deliveries and its own needs. Tesla's staff had increased by 30% in 2018, which Musk said was more than the company could support as it seeks to reduce costs.

Paige Hutchinson, from the Student Success Centre, hands a toque to Kristy Marshall, along with fellow education students Stephanie Nicholl and Aaron Jang, as they stopped to write messages of encouragement Wednesday as part of Bell Lets Talk Day at the University of Lethbridge.

"Bell Let's Talk is a great starting point", she said. Organizations will have until March 15 to submit an application for consideration. Some have also opened up about their own battles with anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, among other diseases.

"Organizations aim to foster a psychologically safe and supportive culture, which is why HR leaders should take every opportunity to bring the conversation about mental health in the workplace to the forefront".
