November 21 | MENTAL HEALTH DAYS IN SCHOOLS: It’s Now the Law

Loading Events

Bullying. Suicide. School safety. Climate Change. Today’s students are grappling with a variety of issues that can lead to depression and anxiety.

To that end, lawmakers in Oregon recently recognized the importance of the mental health of their students by enacting a law giving students five mental health days in a three-month period. Past generations have dealt with a variety of issues that lead to depression and anxiety, so what’s different today and how does this new mandate affect our local schools?

What resources are available in our community to help teens and young adults who are struggling, and what is being done for all youth to help them be more resilient? What can we as parents, friends, and community members do to help our kids grow into strong and happy adults?

Join City Club in this important and timely conversation about youth in our community.
