BELL Lets Talk 2012-2014

Since 2012 Your Life Counts has given advice to, supported and participated in the Bell Let's Talk Initiative in collaboration with CTV and ScribbleLive - the online communication platform.

2012

YLC Founder Rory Butler attended the CTV studio in Toronto and responded directly online to requests for help received during the day. Rory was interviewed live to the nation on Canada AM by host Seamus O'Regan.

Online Bell records of 2012 appear to no longer be available. A short film sequence of Rory's interview with Seamus will be uploaded shortly.

2013

An article written by Rory was included as a central feature of the CTV Bell Let's Talk website during the campaign in 2013. Once again Rory was at the CTV studio in Toronto on the Bell Let's Talk Day helping to facilitate online communication with people in crisis.

2014

YLC was consulted by CTV in respect of the Bell Let's Talk online approach to people in crisis. YLC's recommendation was that the IM (instant messaging) approach was problematic and ought to be shelved in favour of referral to existing agencies and resources. This advice was heeded.
