New York Becomes The First State To Mandate Mental Health Classes In Public School

-blogged by @theRealAlexisDanielle

The state of New York has become the first state to mandate mental health classes as apart of their curriculum. 

According to EDM, students ranging from grades K through 12 will be required to take classes that focus on mental health and the effects it has on their counterparts. 

As part of the curriculum, students will have to cover nine components of mental health. Those components include, but are not limited to: identifying signs, resources for help with mental health issues, support, and the negative stigma that comes with mental illness.

In the most recent years, mental health has become a heightened topic, primarily among children and young adults. Do you think that mental health classes in schools are a good or bad thing?
