Is '13 Reasons Why' dangerous for teens? 12 MIN, 53 SEC

The new Netflix miniseries ‘13 Reasons Why,’ based on a young adult novel by Jay Asher, follows Hannah Baker, a high school student who eventually kills herself. She singles out people in her life who did things to her that contributed to her decision: a girl who bullies her, a boy who sexually assaults her, a high school counselor who doesn’t help her. The story of Hannah’s life is tough stuff, and the show is full of intense emotion and realistic depictions of self-harm. After some outcry, Netflix is now running a warning before episodes.
