Bell Canada has designated today as “Let’s Talk Day” – a key element of their campaign to create a national conversation about mental health in Canada and reduce or eliminate the stigma attached to mental illness.

Olympic medalist Clara Hughes is  the spokesperson for this initiative and ,for every text message sent and every long distance call made by their customers today, Bell will donate 5 cents to programs dedicated to mental health.

What surprises me in this and other mental health promotions is that there is no mention of the role that Employee Assistance Programs play in maintaining mental health in the workplace.
