About Portage

01-28-2015

Today, January 28, Bell will donate 5 cents for every text message sent and every long distance call made by Bell and Bell Aliant customers to programs dedicated to mental health, including Hôpital Louis-H. Lafontaine, Hôpital Charles-LeMoyne, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), the University of British Columbia, Jeunesse j’écoute, and Portage, among others.

Last year on Bell Let’s Talk Day, 109 451 718 Bell text messages and long distance calls were made, which translated into an extra 5 472 585,90 $ for the chosen mental health organisations.

Portage is very grateful to have been chosen as one of the beneficiaries of Bell’s campaign. The MICA Program, established in 1995, treats mental illness and drug addiction as well as their interaction. The program is based on the therapeutic community approach of self-help, mutual support, and positive reinforcement. At the end of treatment, individuals enjoy more autonomy and a better quality of life.

Please support the Bell Let’s Talk campaign and tell your friends and family members on the Bell network that their texts and long distance calls will make a difference today, January 28.

There are several ways to do this:

– Follow the campaign on Twitter at @Bell_LetsTalk and join in retweeting the Bell Let’s Talk Day message. For each such retweet, Bell will donate an additional 5 cents.
– Your account is with Bell? Please text (if included in your billing) and talk about mental health.
