Mental Illness: Did "13 Reasons Why" Get it Right?
13 Reasons Why’s first season details the suicide of California high school student Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford). Released May 18th, season two picks up five months after the initial aftermath of Hannah’s suicide and follows the story of her mother (played by Kate Walsh)’s lawsuit against the administration of her daughter’s high school, which she believes played a crucial role in the girl’s death. Dealing with sensitive themes such as suicide, mental illness, and the impact of bullying, the show has understandably garnered quite a bit of criticism since its initial release.
