A Notice For Parents

Dear Parents and Guardians,

You may be aware of a popular Netflix series that is gaining considerable attention among teens and pre-teens: 13 Reasons Why. It is a fictional series based on a young adult novel by Jay Asher with the same title.  The series has also spurred discussion among mental health professionals and educators and we would like to take this opportunity to open lines of communication on the subject.

13 Reasons Why portrays the story of a 17-year-old girl who commits suicide and leaves behind 13 tapes explaining why she took her own life. The series is graphic in nature, depicting scenes of rape, underage alcohol and drug abuse, bullying and sexism. It has received criticism from mental health professionals for its depiction of suicide and survivor’s guilt.

It is of particular concern that many teens may watch the series without the guidance of a trusted adult. While it is not recommended that teens be encouraged to watch the series, it is important to ask whether your child has seen or heard of it and to engage in conversation with them about suicide, mental health and ways to find help.

Attached you will find a document from the JED Foundation, 13 Reasons Why Talking Points, that can serve as a guide for discussion with your child. Below is information from the National Association of School Psychologists providing additional guidance.

1.     Ask your child if they have heard or seen the series 13 Reasons Why. While we don’t recommend that they be encouraged to view the series, you may offer to watch it with them and discuss their thoughts.

2.     If your child exhibits any warning signs, don’t be afraid to ask if they have thought about suicide or if someone is hurting them. Raising the issue of suicide does not increase the risk or plant the idea. On the contrary, it creates the opportunity to offer help.

3.     Ask your child if they think any of their friends or classmates exhibit warning signs. Talk with them about how to seek help for their friend or classmate. Guide them on how to respond when they see or hear any of the warning signs.

4.     Listen to your child’s comments without judgment. Doing so requires that you fully concentrate, understand, respond, and then remember what is being said. Put your own agenda aside.

5.     Get help from a school-employed or community-based mental health professional if you are concerned for your child’s safety or the safety of one of their peers.

Please contact your school principal if you have questions or concerns. School counselors are equipped with resources to address this important issue and are available to provide support and guidance.  Please be assured, your child’s safety and wellbeing is our topmost concern.  Thank you for your attention.
