13 Reasons Beyond

Each year 44,193 people die from suicide. Over half of the suicides are committed by teens between the ages of 13 and 16. This makes suicide the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S.


The new hit series that aired on netflix earlier this month has been an extreme eye opener for many teens in high school. Often the phrase, “hey it’s Hannah, Hannah Baker,” is recognized as it is the entry into the emotional show. The show follows a young woman who takes her life due to the bullying and pressure of others. The show takes many unexpected twists and turns during the 13 episode series.

8th grader Zach Henry Explains his opinions on the show, and what he believes to be the most influential part of the series. He explained, “The show all comes together, and I think it will help prevent suicide.”


This show is recommended for students between the ages of 13 and 18.  The show has an extremely strong message among all viewers but could be alarming to young viewers.  

The message of the show is hopeful to influence suicidal teens throughout the world. This show may help reduce the number of teen suicides, making it less likely for teens to end their lives due to the pressure and bullying of others.


Since depression is the leading cause of suicidal thoughts, many people need help from a therapist. Therapy is the main “medicine” for teens with suicidal thoughts or actions. Thanks to the help of therapists across the world, preventable suicides have become more effective.
