13 Reasons Why: Talking Points for Viewing and Discussing the Netflix Series [downloadable]

13 reasons talking pointsNetflix’s 13 Reasons Why (13RY), a TV series based on a popular novel of the same name, is a  fictional story and cautionary tale of a young girl’s suicide, and it covers other sensitive subject matter as the series progresses.

In response to the series, the JED Foundation and Suicide Awareness Voices of Education (SAVE) developed talking points to assist parents, teachers, and other gatekeepers in talking to youth about suicide as it relates to the situational drama that unfolds in 13RY. Netflix posted these talking points along with crisis services and a link to additional information about young adult mental health on the official 13RY resource website.
