With April Foreman

Trigger Warning: This episode of Just Talking includes conversation about suicide and suicide prevention.

This week I’m doing some good as Dr. April Foreman returns to the podcast to talk about Netflix’s ’13 Reasons Why’. We discuss suicide and suicide prevention both in the real world and within the world portrayed within the show. Additionally, we talk about the big challenge with a difficult topic like this: is a less-than-accurate portrayal of something as serious as teen suicide in a television show worth the national conversation it provokes?

Follow April on Twitter @DocForeman and check out the #SPSM (Suicide Prevention Social Media) TweetChat @SPSMchat.

This article on Mashable is also worth your time if you want to read up on some of the national conversation generated by ’13 Reasons Why’.

Run Time – 58:00
