This Netflix series focuses on a high school student, Clay Jensen, and his friend Hannah Baker, who died by suicide after experiencing a series of painful events involving school friends, leading to a downward spiral of her mental health and sense of self.

Filmed in a candid and often explicit manner, the series takes an honest look at the issues faced by young people today.


13 Reasons Why seeks to highlight how the behaviors we show others and that are shown to us can be very impactful, the importance of having empathy and compassion for others, even when their struggles aren’t obvious, and that everyone matters to many, even when it doesn’t feel that way.
