13 Reasons Why

I had planned to record this as a vlog but it was 11pm when I finished watching the show and felt the need to immediately type my thoughts.

Against my better judgment, I watched the second season of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why.

I had actually read the book back in 2011 and thought it was an interesting take on bullying.
I watched first season of the show and knew this would have tragic consequences. In fact, 2 California teens committed suicide after the show was released. Also, a 23 year old man in Peru left behind tapes before he jumped to his death. And those were just the news reports I read LAST YEAR.

And while I cannot violate HIPPA, I can tell you that in my job, our team has assessed NUMEROUS teenagers for suicidality as a direct result of watching this show.

As a mental health professional, I believe that this show is DANGEROUS. Dangerous to young people and dangerous to anyone who has a history of mental health issues.

My issues with the show are as follows:
