Tri District Letter re '13 Reasons Why' series.
There has been considerable media attention surrounding a popular new series on Netflix called 13 Reasons Why. Additionally, we have received communication regarding varied levels of concern expressed by a number of national and regional agencies regarding the potential impact of this series on our most vulnerable youth. These agencies include, but are not limited to, Alberta Health Services, Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), Canadian Association of Suicide Prevention, and National Association of School Psychologists (NASP).
This series contains graphic and sensitive content that may increase risk for some youth, particularly those who are potentially vulnerable. It is important that parents and guardians are aware of the series as many of our students have likely viewed it over the past few weeks or will encounter it in the near future.
