It's time that mental health is recognized to be just as important as physical health, especially for our students. House Bill 44 is a bipartisan, student led bill that allows for mental health as a valid absence from school in Kentucky. This bill allows the start of de-stigmatizing mental health by allowing it to be talked about and commonly said in valid situations. Not only does House Bill 44 allow for open communication about mental health but it allows students who genuinely can't make it through the day and won't be able to give 100% to school, to take a break and come back ready to learn.
The bill has been passed through the house and is now in the Senate. It's time to let your voice be heard before it is too late. Sign now to support House Bill 44, student mental well being, and to prove to our legislators just how important this bill is.
