By YouthLine’s teen volunteers
It seems like “13 Reasons Why” has taken over the internet. We know the show has a lot to say, and lots of us connect with it for different reasons. Here are short examples of how we would handle some of the issues presented in 13RW. They show you how differently a conversation can go than what you may have seen in 13 Reasons Why.
At YouthLine, our callers let us know that they feel more hopeful and less stressed after they’ve talked, texted, chatted, or emailed with us. We know getting help (either through us or other trusted adults and family) really does work. It works better than silence and suffering alone. We listen. We support. We keep it to ourselves. Anytime you talk with us, we start with where you are and we go from there.

In case you haven’t seen it: the main character, Hannah, and other students in 13RW are dealing with lots of drama and lots of intense stuff (emotionally and physically), and they’re not getting the help and support they need.
