In an effort to end the stigma surrounding mental health illnesses, Bell is sponsoring it's fourth "Let's Talk Day."

The initiative encourages conversation around the issues surrounding mental health.

Bell will donate 5 cents for every tweet sent on Tuesday with the hashtag 'Bell Let's Talk' (#BellLetsTalk), and for each Facebook share of the 'Bell Let's Talk' image on their official page. The money will go to various mental health initiatives.

The company will also donate every time a Bell cell phone customer sends a text or makes a long distance call.

Through the Bell Let's Talk Community Fund, Bell will provide grants of $5,000 to $50,000 to organizations, hospitals and agencies focused on improving access to mental health care in their communities.
