“13 Reasons Why,” a show on Netflix, focuses on the suicide of a high school girl named Hannah. Season two covers the aftermath of her death and how other characters are coping with their own issues.

Many parents have questions surrounding the show. "Should my child watch it?" "How can I talk to them about suicide and depression?" "What should I do if I suspect my child is struggling with these issues?"
