13 Reasons Why - Support for Educators and Families

13 Reasons Why is a Netflix series that focuses on an adolescent girl who killed herself and left behind a series of audio recordings that explain reasons why she committed suicide.  Based on a bestselling book by Jay Asher, the show has garnered significant media attention related to the way the series portrays trauma in the forms of sexual assault, bullying, verbal emotional and physical abuse.
