Launched in 2003 in support of Bullying Awareness Week, Family Channel’s annual Stand UP! campaign provides youth with real-life solutions to help deal with bullying. Today, the campaign has evolved into a year-round initiative, Stand UP! A Wellness Project, focused on promoting positive relationships and spreading awareness about the importance of kids’ mental health and wellness.

Bell Let's Talk Day | January 29

When it comes to mental health, every action counts. That's why Family Channel is proud to donate valuable media space to Bell Let's Talk messages and encourage viewers to take their own action- big or small. On Bell Let's Talk Day, Bell will donate more towards mental health initiatives in Canada by contributing 5¢ for every applicable text, call, tweet, social media video view and use of the Facebook frame or Snapchat filter.
