Watching Netflix’ new hit show “13 Reasons Why” is an emotionally draining experience: the show deals with suicide, rape and bullying. To see how main character Hannah Baker slips into a depression that ultimately leads to her decision to end her own life is truly depressing and watching her actually do it is just plain shocking. Critics have noted that “13 Reasons Why” shouldn’t be watched by young adults without their parents – it’s definitely a show that shouldn’t be watched without having someone to talk about it.
“13 Reasons Why” is still a must-see. Yes, the decision to show certain scenes probably wasn’t the best one, but the fact that it started a discussion about mental health, suicide and bullying is a huge step into the right direction!
