Guidance for Parents/ Guardians/ Caregivers:
In light of the popularity of the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why and its depiction of suicide, bullying, and drunk driving we want to bring to your attention the following information.
The B.C. Ministry of Education and many mental health organizations are highlighting concerns and providing guidance to school communities and parents to be aware of the dangers and risks associated with children and young people who have been exposed to the series.
It is important for parents to know what children are watching and if necessary, engage them in reflective conversations to make sense of what they are seeing on TV or social media. The following article was created by the Suicide Awareness Voices for Education Society (SAVE), www.save.org/blog/tips-watching-new-netflix-series-13-reasons/ as a guideline for talking to children about the TV series. It explains much of the show's content, and the reasons why some mental health associations are urging caution in allowing children/teens to watch the show unsupported.
School counsellors can assist school staff and parents to engage in supportive conversations with students as well as provide resources and offer expertise inpreventing harmful behaviours.
