13 Reasons Why

Wednesday, 11 July 2018 - 5:00pm to 5:30pm

We discuss the first season of the highly criticised Netflix series "13 Reasons Why". The show has come under immense media scrutiny for its portrayal of mental health and suicide. We discuss the parts of the show that don't sit well with us, and express our thoughts on comments from strangers on the internet and mental health organisations as well. 

This episode of Brainwaves contains major spoilers for the first season of the show, and discusses the heavy themes it presents such as suicide, self harm, bullying, and rape. You can read Headspace's warning about the series here
