Last week I watched (binged) a new show on Netflix called 13 Reasons Why based off the book (with the same title) by Jay Asher. It tells the story of Hannah, a seventeen-year-old girl, who we learn in the first episode has committed suicide. She’s left thirteen tapes for thirteen different people explaining why and how she came to the decision to end her life. This is Hannah’s story, but it’s also the story of Clay, the boy who loved her but didn’t know how to show it, it’s the story of vicious bullies, and adults out of their depth. It’s a shining light on aspects of life that happen every day. It’s also a story about depression and mental health. The show takes an honest and graphic look at teen suicide and its aftermath, and it’ll knock the breath right out of you.Read More
