In the second episode of our Picture This series, we will use the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why as a vehicle for exploring and understanding reactions to suicide. The characters in the show have a wide range of reactions to suicide, which span from anger to grief to altruism. We discuss these different reactions in the show and explore their meaning. We also discuss the concept of violent death, how it differs from natural death, and how it impacts the grieving process.
