Peak mental health body issues warning over popular Netflix series

Peak mental health body issues warning over popular Netflix series

"13 Reasons Why" on Netflix is a series adaptation of the best-selling book of the same title created by Jay Asher.

Child psychologist Dr Michael Carr-Gregg agrees, describing the show's final episode, which graphically depicts Hannah taking her own life, as "one of the worst suicide scenes that I've ever seen".

However, at some points of the show, some of the stories weren't very impactful and ended up dragging the show.

Huffington Post reports that the organisation Headspace has "received a growing numbers of calls and emails directly related to the program" over the last few weeks, with schools and parents already in contact expressing their concern. "But that's something a lot of people can relate to". "[The show] gives this very real sense of getting resolution for the their issues, which doesn't happen obviously".

In a series of interviews titled "Beyond the Reasons" following the 13 episodes, several of the writers, producers and stars discuss the seriousness of suicide and encourage anyone wanting to hurt temselves to talk to family and counselors - but most of that is absent from the actual series.

The 24-year-old singer said that Hanna's life resembles her own life when she was a teenager. He talked about how there is never going to be a sequel, although he did write an alternative ending with Hannah surviving.

Keller recommends to watch the show with your teen, help them build an outside positive connection like volunteering or church to let them know there is hope.

In the Netflix series, Hannah puts her life in the hands of everyone else, including her counselor - the only character who was mature enough to deal with Hannah's actions in a rational way - Mr.

Douglas also explained her fear that the detailed, "risky suicide content" could lead to "a distressing reaction" from viewers, and explained it's crucial that the depiction of suicide not be treated like other deaths or "oversimplified" by implying one issue, such as being bullied, can be the root cause.

"I want to reiterate how much support was there for me", she says. If you are in need of immediate assistance, call Kids Helpline on 1800 55 1800 or Lifeline on 13 11 14. Suicide contagion is a very real phenomenon, and every mental health professional working today will tell you that it's extremely unsafe to show exactly how someone dies by suicide on television.

"It is extremely problematic for me that "13 Reasons Why" portrays depression as something that other people can pull you out of".

If you have watched 13 Reasons Why and feel distressed, headspace can be reached via email or over the phone.
