Media Advisory - Kids Help Phone and Bell Let's Talk team up to talk to students about mental health

ST. JOHN'S, Feb. 7, 2013, 2013 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) -- Kids Help Phone and Bell Let's Talk are visiting a select number of schools in Canada to talk to young people about mental health and end the stigma around mental illness.


Who: Special guest Seamus O'Regan and national spokesperson for Bell Let's Talk Lucas Allard, Clinical Outreach Manager, Kids Help Phone What: Through presentations and role-play interactions, students will learn to demystify common misconceptions about mental health, understand that many people experience mental health struggles, and learn about essential supports like Kids Help Phone.

Where: St. Peter's Junior High School 100 Munden Drive Mount Pearl When: February 11 @ 10:00am Why: It is estimated that 10-20% of young people in Canada are affected by a mental illness or disorder - the single most disabling group of disorders worldwide - but only 1 out of 5 youth receives the mental health services they need.

Talking about mental health helps challenge misunderstanding, helps increase the confidence of young people to talk about mental health concerns, and ultimately seek help for whatever issue they may be facing - big or small - as an important part of working towards good mental health.
