Grade 11 Rehabilitation Day

This petition had 6 supporters

Many people will say that high school is some of the best years of your life, but they never mention the stress of it. 70% of mental health problems have their onset during childhood or adolescence. As grade 11’s, we are strengthening our skills in preparation for university selection the following year as well as balancing our busy personal lives. However, this all takes a big toll mentally. The total number of 12-19 year olds in Canada at risk for developing depression is a staggering 3.2 million! Deadlines are stricter, workloads are larger and us students feel more exhausted than ever (especially with early morning starts). In some cases, we don’t have the weekends to ourselves! In the workplace, mental health days are encouraged, so why not in a school environment, when a young person is changing the most? Help us sit back from it all and take a break.
