13 Reasons Why: A Good Show for Suicide Awareness?

Neima Belewa

The new season of 13 Reasons Why has raised the question, “How does this raise awareness for suicide?” This new season has had graphic scenes described as “disgusting,” “triggering,” and “executed poorly.”
Some people believe that it did not raise awareness, and that it “glamorizes” this difficult subject to the point where it is “tone-deaf.”
Other people had mixed feelings about this season. They said that it shows you how things you say can affect people’s lives and how suicide can affect family and friends. They also said that it shows many people that death is the easy way out and that it should be. There should be people you can talk to about these situations.
This season has really gotten people to open their eyes and think about how they have  treated people and how little rumors and words can affect people feelings.
