    As a college student now I gotta say I support the idea of mental health days. We place a lot of pressure on kids during perhaps the most mentally and emotionally stressful times of their lives, and the results have been damaging. I’ve had friends cave to anxiety in so many different ways, from nervous breakdowns to depression to substance abuse. And granted it wasn’t all because of high school, but that pressure to not just pass but succeed while also maintaining a healthy social life, having extracurricular activities, and in general navigating the confusing hellworld of adolescence creates an oppressive, suffocating atmosphere for students of any kind.
