13 reasons why

The 13 Reasons Why and Love Victor star spoke at length about her gender identity to Time magazine.
Grace joined the cast of the Netflix teen drama in its third series, as Ani Achola.
The streaming service removed the scene in question "on the advice of medical experts".
The streaming service has said they are "looking into" the new statistics.
29 years ago next month, the boy I loved took his own life. If 13 Reasons Why had been around all those years ago my recovery would have been easier
My first encounter of male rape as a police station officer taught me how important conversations about this issue are
'It’s shocking, it’s horrific, but it’s happening.'
The Netflix show has previously been criticised for its explicit content.
The actress struggles to prioritise herself, but she's found ways to make it work.
Each episode will be preceded by a video message from the cast.
Media producers and regulators need to take a considered approach to how they portray suicide in drama and film. Campaigners can learn from other public health debates such as the portrayal of cigarette smoking.
Netflix needs to stop with T.V shows and movies that are supposed to help "spark a conversation" and "break the taboo" because they do so much more damage than help within the conversation.
People have become more selfish towards their own needs, and less empathetic towards others. Instead of talking to each other when we sit next to a stranger, we think that it would be less awkward to gaze down at our phones and pretend we are too busy. The person sitting next to you could be hurting inside, yet you would never know because you did not try asking.
13 Reasons Why should not be seen as a driving force for mental illness, as it fails to accurately or sensitively depict the link between mental illness and suicide. Although not intentionally, it is somewhat an exploitation of serious issues in young people today and could have a negative impact on vulnerable, impressionable teenagers.
As a parent, I took a lot away from it - because although we have all lived through teenage years, memories fade and society changes. And it is certainly helpful to reinforce the potential enormity of seemingly minor issues. It shows us that it's not just about any one issue, it's about a sideways snowstorm of shit that young people might face every day, and how stacking one seemingly minor event on top of another can create an avalanche that engulfs life in the classroom, online and in your head.

An audience divided, viewers of 13 Reasons Why have had a lot of opinions on how the show televised rape, bullying and suicide
I understand that people are especially worried about the effect the show will have on vulnerable teenagers, but sadly, suicide is so prevalent in our society. As a teenager I, like so many others, had a Tumblr account. And, like so many others, as I was scrolling through endless pictures of cats, glitter and tattoos, I would come across pictures of self harm
I knew the scene was coming. But the graphic nature of Hannah's death was too much to bear. I burst into tears during it, and cried about it when I went to bed. I couldn't stop seeing it. It was the first thing I thought of when I woke up. And I don't think Netflix should have included it in the show.
