Lethbridge Family Services is receiving $18,000 from the Bell Let's Talk Community Fund. The money will be used to support a therapy group initiative for young women called "Take Back Your World." It's a ten-week program for teen girls who have experienced abuse and are now dealing with mental health issues. The group will allow young women to safely explore issues like childhood, physical, emotional and sexual abuse while giving them a voice in an empowering environment. Today (January 31) is Bell Let's Talk Day where five-cents is donated to support Canadian mental health programs for every text, mobile and long distance call as well as the use of social media hashtags, frames and filters. -Tina Giesbrecht
