The second season of 13 Reasons Why premieres tonight on Netflix and as the show features some troubling content, the streaming service has teamed up with Headspace to provide resources and information to the families viewing the show.
The resources are to ensure that "viewers and the wider community are safe and informed about the shows difficult content" and the information is to be read before viewing the show's new season.
On Headspace's website, the information is separated into three categories for young people, parents and where those affected by the content can seek help.
The website has informed young people "to be respectful" as they realise that many people will be discussing the series and that "some people may be distressed by some of the themes in the series, while others are not."
They also suggest that young people create a support plan so that if any of the themes in the show do become distressing, they know who they can talk to.
"This might be with the support of family and friends. Letting them know what you might struggle with, and how they can help is likely to be useful."
Headspace's information for parents "aims to assist parents engage in healthy conversations about some of the issues addressed in 13 Reasons Why. It also includes some suggestions for how to respond to these appropriately and spur productive discussions around these themes."
They have provided tips on how to approach the conversation as well as a plan to support young people who may be distressed by the show's content.
