The Mental Health Association of Westchester embraces open conversation about the serious problems of bullying, sexual assault and risk of suicide. Like other advocates and mental health experts, we are concerned about the messages that youth may take away from the Netflix show, 13 Reasons Why. The attention generated by the show offers an important opportunity to talk frankly about difficult challenges faced by children, adolescents and young adults. It is an opportunity that should not be missed.
