Today is Bell Let’s Talk… and it’s been ten years of this PR campaign and we still focus on mental health solutions that aren’t grounded in results but rather someone else’s idea of how to help.

Mental health is cute when it’s a white woman with two kids – it’s not respected when it’s a young indigenous woman living on the streets because the impacts of residential school still lives in her, because the racism towards her as stripped her self image and worth, and because the resources put in place are full of rules and policies that just ain’t it 

Focus on solutions grounded in Reconciliation and Indigenous ways of healing. Our community doesn’t move forward until everyone is supported.
