"I have had a handful of folks here ask me about the Netflix show 13 Reasons Why. It is obviously not our role to police what people do and don't watch, that said from a suicide prevention standpoint there are some pretty concerning elements in the show." Said Kim Myers, MSW Suicide Prevention Coordinator.
