Supportive Resources for the Release of the Netflix Series 13 Reasons Why - Season 2
As you may know, the Netflix series, 13 Reasons Why season two, will be released this Friday, May 18th. The first season, which was extremely popular with teens and young adults, followed the story of a high school girl's (Hannah) suicide, including scenes involving bullying, sexual assault and suicide portrayal. In season two, we have learned that the show will focus more on themes of recovery as the school community copes with the aftermath of a suicide loss, suicide attempt and sexual assault.
