The Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) has released features on athletes Rosie MacLennan and Christine Girard to support the Bell Let's Talk Day mental health campaign.

Trampoline star MacLennan stars in a nine-minute feature in English, where she talks about her battle with anxiety and depression.

It shows how the double Olympic gold medallist has managed to find balance both on and off the field of play.

MacLennan won the individual trampoline title at London 2012 and Rio 2016.

The piece on the 31-year-old has been made in collaboration with sports channel TSN.

Weightlifter Girard also discusses her mental health story in a four-minute French film.

She describes how her focus on wellness helped her come to the realisation that the support she needed had been there all along and how helping others with similar challenges contributed to her own recovery.

Her piece has been made with French-language channel RDS.

Girard won Olympic gold at London 2012 after initially finishing in third place in the women's under-63 kilograms.

Both the gold and silver medallist were retrospectively disqualified for doping, and she was promoted to first.

Bell Let's Talk Day is being marked today in Canada, with the initiative launched in 2011.

Telecommunications company Bell has pledged five cents for every applicable text, call, tweet, retweet, social media video view, use of Facebook frame and use of Snapchat filter.  

The COC is a partner of both Bell and the Let's Talk programme.
