So recently I was bored and scrolling through Netflix , as one does, and I came across a Netflix original show called “13 Reasons Why”
The show is based on a girl called Hannah who committed suicide and left tapes behind explaining why she did it.
I have to say I am so happy Netflix created this show.
Personally as someone who deals with depression on a daily basis it is great to see that people are talking about it.
Depression and/or suicide is a very tabu topic as it is quite dark and heavy. But it is extremely important that we as a society talk about it to make the people who suffer from depression feel okay with their condition and be able to help themselves, and also to be able to understand how to help someone going through depression/suicidal thoughts.
I do recommend this show as it is both intriguing and informative about depression and the life several high schoolers lead.Please be safe and know that you are loved. You are here for a reason and please don’t take it for granted.
If you or someone you know is going through depression/suicidal thoughts please call this free suicide helpline :1-800-273-8255
stay safe,~ Aubrey
