13 Reasons Why Pre-Release Statement_SAVE.pdf
As you may have heard, the second season of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why is being released this coming Friday, May 18th. Please see the attached pre-release statement by Suicide Awareness Voices of Education (SAVE) regarding the series and some general guidelines and resources for educators and families.
As stated in the attached document, numerous organizations from around the world have partnered to develop resources for youth, families, educators, clinicians, and the media around the various challenging topics portrayed in the series. These resources are presently being compiled on the following website: https://www.13reasonswhytoolkit.org/.
Please note that content is still being added to this site, and the site is expected to be completed later this week. Therefore, while the website (and attached letter) may be helpful for schools as they prepare to communicate with youth, family, and community members about the series, it is not recommended to share these resources with family members until the website is completed later this week. The attached letter providing the website link may also be disseminated widely at that time.
