Things are certainly different for kids these days. As NBC News reports, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown signed a bill last month that allows students to take “mental health days” the same way they would for a case of the flu. Now hold your nasty emails – I’m aware this is aimed at helping ease the stigma of mental illness among young people. That said, it’s hard not to recall my own experiences with mental health days back in high school, which was more commonly known then as cutting school. Or as my spiritual adviser Ferris Bueller once put it, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
