Bell has previously struggled with depression herself and is aware of the sufferings of someone traumatized by personal experiences.
In a statement on mental illness and the stigma around it, she wrote, “It’s a knee-jerk reaction to judge people when they’re vulnerable.

She continued, “The word I would like to eradicate today is ‘unspeakable,’ because I think everything should be spoken…I think shame should be spoken.”
She was awarded and honored for her strong efforts towards her campaign “Hunger Is.”

Dreams are lovely. But they are just dreams,” she added. “Fleeting, ephemeral, pretty. But dreams do not come true just because you dream them. It’s hard work that makes things happen. It’s hard work that creates change.”
