Cover picture for the articleMinnesota should follow the template of Illinois’ mental health days for students and expand the program to include adults. When I began my career, “mental health days” were ridiculed as “being lazy for no good reason” days. A person had to be physically sick, not-able-to-leave-the-bathroom sick, to justify missing a work day. Thankfully, that has changed over time. Now (hopefully) people are staying home when they’re ill. And we’re more aware that psychological symptoms deserve our help and compassion.
