In 2015, Bell announced it would extend Bell Let's Talk for another 5 years.

The intent behind these events is to encourage workers and employers to speak up about mental health issues and to educate them that there are tools available to help.

Today, Bell will surpass 1 billion all-time Bell Let's Talk Day messages of support for mental health, with its total funding commitment to mental health set to top $100 million.
