Netflix “13 Reasons Why” Concerns

Responsible and Aware Viewership – The popular Netflix series “13 Reasons Why” caused concerns among mental health advocacy groups and experts regarding the controversial presentations of suicide, bullying, and mental health topics. Twenty-four leading suicide prevention and mental health organizations have since created a website for families, educators, and professionals to accompany the release of the second season. The website, www.13reasonswhytoolkit.org, contains information, resources, and toolkits to help address the important topics within each episode. Netflix has also released a warning video and other resources at www.13reasonswhy.info.

Metrocare has not received any indication that any of the information in the email accounts has been misused. As a general rule, Metrocare recommends BTCS members review all health care related statements they receive, and be alert for any health care services they did not receive from any of the providers. If you see any charges services you did not receive, please promptly contact the provider of those services.
