“Talking is the best way to start breaking down the barriers associated with mental illness.” ~ Bell Let’s Talk
On January 28, 2014, Canadians are encouraged once again to take part in Bell Let’s Talk Day to fight the stigma surrounding mental health. When we approach mental health from a place of compassion and non-judgment we create a healing environment for those living with mental illness to seek care with dignity, hope and acceptance.
Whether a person is dealing with thoughts of suicide, grief, or mental illness, being an empathic listener can provide tremendous relief and comfort. Brené Brown reminds us that “ … what makes something better is connection,” in her brilliant short video on The Power of Empathy.
