"As most of you know, the trending Netflix series "13 Reasons Why," based on a young adult novel of the same name, is raising some questions and concerns about mental health and suicide. The series revolves around 17-year-old Hannah Baker, who takes her own life and leaves behind audio recordings for 13 people she says were in some way part of why she killed herself. Each tape recounts painful events in which one or more of the 13 individuals played a role."
