HOW IT STARTED:
Hailey Hardcastle established a network of student activists in order to make schools a better place for those struggling with mental health challenges.
HOW IT’S GOING:
She continues working to expand the law to other states and bring mental health resources to classrooms. To date, ten states have implemented mental health days as a student right, and five have current proposed legislation.
“If you want to be able to afford college you have to do a ton of extracurriculars and get perfect grades and there’s just a higher standard now to be able to get things like scholarships and financial aid help than I think there was before.”
