Why this petition matters
A lot of people struggle with mental illness. Some mental illnesses such as ADHD and anxiety can be helped with the support of fidgets and other comfort items such as stuffed animals. Some people feel judged for carrying around say, pop it for example. About one in five teens have reported struggling with mental illness at least once in their lives. There have been lots of studies that show how beneficial fidget toys are in the classroom. So, this petition is meant to make people who are struggling feel supported and free from judgement carrying whatever they need to feel safe or calm. It is very important that everyone is given an equal chance to succeed by allowing people to have their fidget toys in public and in classrooms; free from judgement, would make life easier for those one in five teens.
