The Netflix series 13 Reasons Why tells an important story about a number of difficult topics. The obvious takeaways from the show are that people should seek help if they’re suffering from depression, and others should reach out if they think their peers may be struggling.
When you’re in high school (or middle school, or, really, any other point in life), things can feel like way bigger deals than they actually are. It can be hard to remember that you’re not alone, as Hannah (Katherine Langford) thought she was.
In light of the show, Langford and Dylan Minnette, who plays Clay, made a video about surviving high school. It’s great advice for teens — or, really, for anyone who could use a little reassurance in their lives.

“Don’t let your feelings eat at you,” Langford said in the video. “Talk, write, or let it out.” If you or someone you know is suffering from depression, that advice is crucial, no matter how old you are. The video is sweet, but the show’s message is a serious one. Don’t wait until it’s too late to get help.
