SALEM, Oregon (AP) – A new law in Oregon allows students to take “mental health days” just as they would sick days. Mental health experts say it’s one of the first state laws to explicitly instruct schools to treat mental health and physical health equally. And it comes at a time educators are increasingly considering the emotional health of students. Utah passed a similar law last year. The teens behind Oregon’s new law say it’s meant to respond to a mental health crisis in schools.
