Warning Added to Netflix Series ’13 Reasons Why’ Thanks to YOU

Thanks to the advocacy of our members and mental health advocates around the country, Netflix will be adding a suicide trigger warning video before each episode of the next season of “13 Reasons Why.” The video will feature resources for youth and parents to address suicide, sexual assault, and other themes in the program. Netflix also added similar resources to the show’s website, including  the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Read the full New York Times Article here.

NAMI California had joined other mental health leaders in a digital advocacy campaign launched by Our Health California calling for a display of suicide prevention resources on every episode of “13 Reasons Why.” Last November, the campaign delivered 12,000 petition signatures to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings.
