Suicide Prevention


13 Reasons Why Netflix Series: The Utah State Board of Education wants the following documents shared with all staff, posted on district and school websites and made available to parents:


The bottom line: If a student wants to watch the series, we tell them to watch it with a parent. We are also telling parents to watch it with their child due to the graphic content, language and storyline glamorizing suicide. If a student has already watched the series, we recommend the parent review the Talking Points with them.

The following resources are for parents who have children who are coping with the loss of a friend or other loved one to suicide:
