A former colleague of mine declares a Mental Health Day every semester. On that day, which is not a national or university holiday, his classes do not meet.
I did that once. Instead of meeting my class as scheduled, I told my students (ahead of time of course) that I’d be in a nearby café and invited them to drop by and chat. About 4-5 students from a class of 30 did.
In that spirit, I’m declaring today to be Mental Health Day on this blog! Treat this as an Open Thread to speak your mind on any subject of your choosing. If I could, I’d buy you a beer in a neighborhood tavern. In lieu of that, we can have a virtual beer. Cheers!
