Bell Let’s Talk is a wide-reaching, multi-year program designed to break the silence around mental illness and support mental health all across Canada.

We are fortunate to live in a time where quality care is right at our fingertips. Online courses and programs offer easy access to self-guided exercises and individual coaching with skilled experts. If you're an employer wondering how you can help provide your employees with tools and resources to manage mental illness, CoreHealth has numerous wellness partners that specialize in various services on mental health solutions. Educating and encouraging employees to take advantage of these resources shows your support for their wellbeing and can empower them to seek support .

MindWell-U delivers evidence-based mindfulness training for the workplace. Their bilingual 30 Day Mindfulness Challenge is all online and proven by university researchers to reduce stress, increase resilience and improve performance. Workplace wellness programs often promote physical exercise but we now know the importance and possibilities of mental exercise. Mindfulness practice is a form of mental exercise, and when practiced routinely (similar to going to the gym or walking 10,000 steps) there is a significant benefit.
SelfHelpWorks uses a structured cognitive behavioral training approach that focuses on the root causeof unhealthy behavior, rather than the behavior (or symptom or habit) itself. They have multiple health coaching courses including ones for smoking cessation, obesity, stress management and more. The end result is permanent, sustainable behavioral change that can be attained without the use of willpower.

Over 75% of all physical ailments are stress related. Many psychological issues and conditions are stress driven. Outer Stress Inner Calm delivers online skills training that enables users to self regulate to reduce the negative experiences of stress. Their comprehensive self directed program is centered around 10 weekly video training sessions where employees can learn the skill of self-regulation to progressively reduce the experience of stress and develop a new sense of well being.
