"I think it's romanticizing suicide, making suicide seem like this lovely drawn-out process", they said. That was one of my biggest fears going into the show.
Netflix said that four mental-health experts worked as consultants on the series and a website for the show (13reasonswhy.info) lists crisis hotlines and information on receiving help for those feeling suicidal.
"For adults, it's easier to help yourself, but as a teenager, you think everything is the end of the world and you don't realize that life goes on", she said. So, -on right answers in a season 2 of 13 Reasons Why?
All these elements combined resulted in a very well thought out show that I would recommend and is worth all the hype.
The series is based off the book by Jay Asher. Will Tyler be responsible for a school shooting?
"It is extremely problematic for me that "13 Reasons Why" portrays depression as something that other people can pull you out of".
"It overwhelmingly seems to me that the most irresponsible thing we could've done would have been not to show the death at all", he continued.
My last, but main, issue I have with "13 Reasons Why" is that its goal is to bring light to issues surrounding mental health, but ultimately fails. "So far the show is good but really dramatic". In the book, she made the tapes to inform her peers about why she took the drastic actions she did, but in the series, the tapes become a stage for her to ruin their lives because they ruined hers.
The show is available to view in New Zealand now for Netflix subscribers.
Mindframe, a national mental health initiative funded by the Australian government's National Suicide Prevention Program, has developed non-enforceable guidelines on safe and accurate portrayal of suicide, and, for the most part, Australian journalists, broadcasters and media companies and follow those guidelines.
"The series carries a TV-MA rating as well as graphic content warnings preceding specific episodes, along with an after-show and companion website with additional resources". It's a very upsetting show!
Scheff explains that when the conversation about Hannah's suicide scene began in the writers' room, he "immediately flashed on [his] own experience". The 23-year-old actor from Tennessee has been in the business since 2008, but was most recently in the teacher comedy Those Who Can't, where he played a character also named Bryce.
