Response to 13 Reasons Why

A TV series titled 13 Reasons Why was recently released via Netflix. The series portrays the story of a young girl who ended her life. Mental health experts have expressed significant concerns about the graphic nature and content of the series and its failure to promote positive, proactive and effective help-seeking behaviours.

We encourage you to monitor and discuss your daughter’s social media use and television program viewing at home. Our school counsellor is happy to communicate with you should you have any concerns.

A document produced by Headspace is available to families by clicking the link below.

This will assist you in discussing the series with your daughter.

If you or anyone you know needs help, please contact Lifeline on 13 11 14, Headspace on 1800 650 890 or Kids Helpline on 1800 551 800.
