Bell is also pleased to share information about a NEW initiative that directly impacts post-secondary student mental health. Yesterday, Bell Let’s Talk and The Rossy Family Foundation (The RFF) announced a joint $1,000,000 donation for the creation of a national standard for post-secondary student mental health to support student success on campuses across Canada. The RFF and Bell Let’s Talk have engaged the Mental Health Commission of Canada to lead the project to establish the standard in collaboration with Canada’s standards setting organizations.  The new standard will establish mental health best practices at Canadian universities, colleges and institutes to support student mental health and academic success and developed in collaboration with students, staff and faculty.   Read more about the announcement here.
