BRODHEAD (WKOW) -- It's a series that's received mixed reaction. Netflix's "13 Reasons Why" takes on the topic surrounding suicide.
The show tells the story of a 17-year-old girl who takes her own life, leaving behind 13 recordings for her friends that explain the reasons why she committed suicide.
It's a show that's gaining popularity with teens across the nations, including in Wisconsin. The show now has the Brodhead School District warning parents.
"I watched '13 Reasons Why' the day it came out," said sophomore Rhianna Teubert. "I know most of the people are watching it. They seem to like it."
But some say the show glorifies suicide. Mental health experts are warning parents the series could lead to copy-cats, especially among students who suffer from mental illness.
