People Are Questioning Whether Hannah Baker Even Had A Mental Illness
Carly Cassella

The older generation needs to understand that if the younger generation ultimately chooses suicide, it won’t be because they’re following Hannah Baker or because they want to exact revenge on their bullies — it’ll be because every time they tried to tell someone about their illness, they get shot down or told ‘it’s just in your head’.

13 Reasons Why was a great way to spark public discussion — not just about bullying or mental illness, but about how the older generation treats depression and other similar mental illnesses.

Great piece.
