NPR moment: 13 reasons why…

…Netflix show about teen suicide may be raising questions and starting conversations…

listen to the radio conversation about it, and related mental health issues, here:

Netflix consulted with mental health professionals on the show and the company says the series has “opened up a dialogue” on a difficult subject. However, it has since added additional warnings to episodes of the program.

Are kids really as impressionable as the news about “13 Reasons Why” makes them seem?

 

Is the show increasing self-harm by kids? Or ripping the lid off things kept silent too long?
