13 Reasons why take off Netflix and stop dramatising suicide!
On the 21st July 2018 our world was shattered when we lost our beautiful gorgeous girl Hannah. Words cannot describe how we are feeling right now because it still doesn’t feel real.
On that horrific day before Hannah took her own life she was watching this programme and it was on pause when the police arrived at her house.
Mental health is a complex issue that needs more help, support and awareness but I feel programmes like this glamorise suicide rather than raise awareness like it is intended. I think producers and writers need to be very careful of the content and need to understand these can be triggers for someone who suffers with their mental health. I’m not saying this programme is the cause of my daughters death but it definitely didn’t help!
Hannah will be very much missed but never forgotten and will always be in our hearts.
