13 Reasons Why

We would like to bring to your attention the recent release of the second season of the Netflix ​series “13 Reasons Why.” The series highlights topics such as teen suicide, rape, sexual abuse, bullying, substance abuse, gun violence and threat related behaviours.

The Canadian Centre for Threat Assessment and Trauma Response (CCTATR) cautions educators to be mindful of using this as an educational resource as it may contribute as an additional risk enhancer to those who are vulnerable, have a history of trauma, are victims of related content, or are currently struggling with suicidal ideation. After discussion with our administration this will not be viewed in our classrooms.

We bring this to your attention because students have been and will be viewing this (quite possibly binge-watching it alone), talking about it with their peers and thinking about the messages of this series. Many are also re-watching Season 1 in anticipation of the new season. While many youth are emotionally prepared to process the messages and the graphic nature of this series and its content, many vulnerable youth are not. We are asking that all be vigilant in watching for warning signs of affected youth.

Attached are some resources for educators and parents​. 13 Reasons Why Netflix Series - Considerations for Educators - NASP.pdf13 Reasons Why Netflix Series - Considerations for Educators - NASP.pdfInformation Regarding the Upcoming Release of 13 Reasons Why Season 2 - NASP.pdfInformation Regarding the Upcoming Release of 13 Reasons Why Season 2 - NASP.pdf
