Reducing the stigma around student mental illness — A day at a time
"Mental health days" now join the flu, stomachache, and common cold as excusable absences in schools in Oregon and Utah. Legislation passed this summer in Oregon will allow students five excusable mental health days in a three-month period. In Utah, permissible illnesses were expanded in 2018 to include mental illnesses in addition to physical illnesses — reports The New York Times and the Associated Press.
