Living with mental hardships isn’t easy. And neither is talking about it. But listening to other people’s experiences and sharing advice can make the journey bearable.
To celebrate Bell Let’s Talk Day, we’ve put together a list of videos from our Much Creators that tackle issues of mental illness, the stigma surrounding it, and how to thrive despite these factors. Scroll through to join the conversation:
