Victorian students call for ‘no questions asked’ mental health days

But Tom Elliott’s concerned the reason many students have poor mental health is because they’ve missed so much school already.
Nina Laitala, CEO of Victorian Student Representative Council, said giving students the opportunity to take the day off would help “alleviate” some of the pressure students had been under.
“It’s been exhausting for them,” she said on 3AW Drive.
