Some times we need a day to ourselves, a day away from the office to work on our mental health. With more pressure on students these days from school work, to “social expectations” – should students be allowed mental health days?
Some states like Oregon are now allowing students to take time off for mental health days. Oregon schools allow students to take five mental health days every three months. The students must complete any exams or homework they miss. The state of Utah passed a similar bill.
Tomorrow, October 10, is World Mental Health Day.
