Today is a very important day. Today is the day when Bell Canada opens up a very important (and much needed) dialogue on social media about mental health.
Each time you tweet or post (to Facebook/Instagram) on January 25 using #BellLetsTalk, Bell will donate 5¢ more to mental health initiatives.
I battled postpartum depression for three years. I'm very open to talking about it when the subject comes up. To this day, there's still a strong stigma about postpartum depression and trust me, if you're a new mom, if you're crying in the shower and wishing for the life you had before the baby showed up to come back, I hear you. I know what you're going through. It is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of. I want to tell you, as a survivor, you will get through it, but you can't get through it alone. Please talk to your doctor or find a local CMHA near you by visiting this website.
Lastly, I'm here for you. I can be reached by text (9054427423) or email email@example.com. You can even call me. I'll listen.
