Netflix Show ’13 Reasons Why’ Catches Heats From Mental Health Experts

The Netflix original “13 Reasons Why” has stirred up a hot debate about mental health for teenagers. The show closely follows Jay Asher’s 2007 young adult book of the same title where a teenage girl named Hannah Baker leaves behind 13 cassette tapes after killing herself. Mental health experts say it could pose health risks for teenagers with suicidal thoughts, as it almost romanticizes suicide, while others believe it has started a serious conversation about mental illness.
