13 Reasons Why is a Netflix series based on the 2007 novel by Jay Asher. Weeks after it released it quickly became the most talked about show of 2017.  The show follows teenager Clay Jensen and his mission to discover why his classmate, Hannah Baker commits suicide. Baker took her life after recording 13 tapes dedicated to the people who played a key role in her decision.

While the show has received much praise and has struck a chord with many, some find the show to be harming.

Purser is not the only one advising against watching the show either. Headspace, an Australian mental health organization, says the show is dangerous and risky.

Huffington Post Australia reports, “Headspace said it had “received a growing numbers of calls and emails directly related to the program”, with the national manager of Headspace school support Kristen Douglas telling The Huffington Post Australia that schools and parents had already been in contact expressing their concern.”
