In the month when Netflix released his first episodes 13 Reasons for online, the number of suicides among young Americans has risen. The series is about a teenager who is robbing his life. He says thirteen reasons on the cassette tapes he sends to his classmates.
According to researchers at the University of Pennsylvania, suicide rates between 10 and 17 years old in April 2017 were almost 29 percent higher than you would expect from previous years.
Researchers point out that their study shows no causal link. The number of suicides in the rest of 2017 was also relatively high.
