FARMINGTON, N.M.- Piedra Vista High School students are taking mental health matters into their own hands.

“Obviously, mental health is such a big struggle these days with social media that sort of thing,” said Sydney Gilbert. “We wanted to try and make a safe space in the school, which should be the one safe place kids should have away from home."

The TLC room is full of pillows and stress-relieving trinkets.

"It's there for them to relax and not be stressed,” Bianca Prather said.

About a dozen students use the space on any given week, according to the school’s librarian.

The space is available to students, one at a time, for 15 minutes.

The students say they hope their space will encourage other schools to consider organizing one of their own.
