Bell Let’s Talk


Dedicated to moving mental health forward in Canada, Bell Let’s Talk promotes awareness and action with a strategy built on four key pillars: fighting the stigma, improving access to care, supporting world-class research and leading by example in workplace mental health. To learn more about how you can support the cause by spreading awareness, please visit Bell Let’s Talk. On January 29, remember to call, text, tweet or post to contribute to the growing support of this important cause! Every bit counts.

We want to take this moment to remind you of the services available to you in regards to your own mental health and the mental health of those around you:

  • RRU’s Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP) is an employer paid benefit that is available to every employee and their dependants;
  • RRU’s extended health plan includes 80% coverage up to $500 for Counselling Services from a registered therapist;
  • The HR funded Professional and Continuing Studies course list now includes a great selection of mental health related courses and programs;  
  • The RRU Rec Center offers reduced rates to staff of $67.20 per year – a great way to reduce stress and unwind with colleagues; and
  • Hosted by HR, lunchtime employee tours and lunch and learns take place monthly. This month, we hope you’ll join us for the Healthy U Lunch and Learn: Reading Food Labels led by Kristen Yarker, registered dietician, and an Archives Tour led by Archives Manager Jenny Seeman.

Royal Roads wants to keep this conversation going. Health and wellness at the university encompasses many aspects: mind, body and life. We welcome your feedback to enhance our current wellness program, titled "Healthy U" so future initiatives can best support the needs and interests of the RRU community. Please remember to email us should you want to connect.

Thank you once again for being a part of RRU’s wellness mission and for supporting such a great cause. 

Wishing you a happy and healthy 2020!
