Allow Ontario Students to Take Mental Health Days

There are countless students in Ontario dealing with mental health related issues, often making them unable to properly focus or engage in their schoolwork and education to their fullest potential. 

Frankly students in 2019 have higher stress levels than they ever have before, which is why I believe students should be able to take designated mental health days, in which they’re able to take time for themselves, and get their balance. 

As well as this, school’s need to collectively work towards improving the skills and resources given to students dealing with mental health related issues.

Mental health days would be a huge step towards destigmatization and normalizing mental health. It’s time to get the conversation going, it’s time to stop suffering in silence!
