With “13 Reasons Why Not,” students honor friends who saved them

Over the lound speakers at a Michigan high school, students are telling honest and intimate stories about how friends have helped them get through hard times. Playing off the controversial Netflix show “13 Reasons Why,” which critics say promotes suicide, these students are telling 13 stories about youth supporting each other.  “So far it’s working. There’s a dialogue at school between students and staff–suicide is being talked about.” Read a Q&A and listen to one of the stories at Youth Radio.
