Mental Health assembled in wooden blocks

Do you need a mental health day?

Thanks to a new bill, students in Oregon will now be able to take a mental health day off from school- just like a sick day. No penalty.

Students made the push to make this possible – hoping to take away the stigma connected to mental health. A reminder – just like we have to rest and exercise to keep our bodies healthy, we need to work to keep our minds healthy, too! I think a mental health day is in order….and SOON!!
