Netflix: Stop Showing "13 Reasons Why"
13 Reasons Why, the book, is an extremely suicide-glorifying work of literature that promotes suicide awareness in all the wrong ways. The show is even worse because you are literally watching the trauma. Sign PetitionSign Petition
It elicits empathy in the viewer, which can be good for people who don't understand the issue. But for those who are struggling with depression and suicidal ideation, the pain is even more intense. Watching the show can increase feelings about depression, self harm, and even suicide. We need to be speaking about these topics openly, but sensitively and in a healthy healing manner.
13 Reasons Why has already caused an increase in teens admitted to the hospital for mental health safety. So please sign this petition to demand that Netflix stop showing it on their site.
