Canadian golf pro and Bell Let’s Talk Ambassador Andrew Jensen spoke to MARLANT members at Juno Tower on January 31 to kick off Bell Let’s Talk Day in Halifax. Jensen spoke about his history with depression and mental illness, heard stories from military personnel about their own experiences, and stuck around to chat and answer questions afterward. Other initiatives for the day included a project spearheaded by EAP and TEME that saw blue benches painted with the Bell Let’s Talk logo set around the base, encouraging members to stop for conversation and share photos on social media.
