The topic of suicide is hard to stomach, especially if you know someone who’s either tried to take their life or has been successful with doing so. The ways to prevent it aren’t discussed much either. “13 Reasons Why” is a new Netflix Original Series that’s about this topic specifically. The show is based off of a book written by Jay Asher.

Released on March 31, there’s been nothing but buzz about the show. It tells the story of high-schooler Hannah Baker and the events that led to her taking her own life. After she was gone, the other main character, Clay Jensen, receives cassette tapes from Hannah. From then on, the show is a series of flashbacks of the events Hannah experienced within the last few months of her life.

The tapes talk about the reasons why she took her life and multiple people are talked about on them. The reason Clay had first received them is because he’s on one of them, but he doesn’t know which one or what he did that drove Hannah to her decision.

I’m a big fan of this show because it brings to light what people have to go through and how emotionally damaging some of the events Hannah experienced can be. It breaks my heart to hear about people choosing to kill themselves because they think there’s no way out of the dark place they’re in. I hate the topic itself because it’s so sad, but there needs to be more done to prevent these things from happening.

I have yet to read the book but I plan to. If you’re looking for a drama with a real and relevant topic, I suggest checking it out.

See you next time!
