Agree with all of this

Hard to say whether the idea was already there for the girl or if the show created the idea for her. Maybe the show did show her a way to do it or make her feel more justified in doing it but it just as likely couldíve happened regardless. But at 12, either her parents or the friendís parents shouldíve been more careful about what they were watching as well (especially if there was any reason to be alarmed)

Either way, this is a very sad story though

I know people who know this girl's mum. The back story is a lot more complicated and she had many mental health issues which have been caused by family problems. I have never seen the show but it sounds awful but at 12 she shouldn't have been watching something like that anyway. However, I don't think the programme is to blame in this situation

There were also a couple of explicit rape scenes, did that cause people to go out and rape people? You can’t put an idea in someone’s head if it wasn’t already being thought about.

It’s a very sad story, but a tv show isn’t responsible for mentally vulnerable kids killing themselves.

But then again, at 12 I was probably watching worse so I canít really blame the parents either, itís not that easy to keep track of everything your kids do once they get a bit older.

Also the 30 per cent spike, what is that based on? teenage suicide in the US? so 30 teens in very 100 commit suicide, it seems a very high percentage?
It means a percentage increase in the number of suicides so let's say if there were 10,000 teen suicides last year, a 30% increase would be an increase of 3000 (so 13,000 this year).

I haven't seen the figures claiming that to be the case though, a 30% spike seems huge.

Again I have to reiterate that I don't think the show handles mental health or suicide well at all. Showing the aftermath of the suicide doesn't mitigate the fact that it's being used as the focus plot point for some relatively cheap teen drama and is handled in a dramatised, unrealistic way. Showing that her friends and family were upset does not mean that the act isn't glorified. Its a ham-fisted plot device.

You could say that about alot of issues on alot of shows though

Obviously she will have had mental health problems; no one who is healthy can be forced or encouraged to kill themself by a TV show, but that doesn't mean its unlikely to be a factor. Suicidal ideation is "infectious" - for example, if one student in a University accommodation completes suicide, their peers are at a significantly increased suicide risk - and people with suicidal thought can be prompted to act and put at risk by poorly handled things like this.

You can but the difference is that its usually a storyline or subplot within an established show. There are indeed plenty of examples of it being handled badly - but I can't think of another show where it is the CENTRAL theme and focus of the entire season and the main leveraged plot device. Or in other words, a show is usually the backdrop for a storyline that features suicide. In the case of this show, the suicide IS the backdrop upon which other storylines are mounted. IMO there's a huge difference.

It never glorified raping so its not a great comparison

Degrassi is a fine example of a show which featured real life struggles in it's storylines

Ts hits the point really and everyone of those points he made could be a young immature brain taking one trigger point and thinking yeah..That's exactly how I feel....now that could lead them to turning thier lives around, but as far as this show goes it could also be the trigger point to follow through on your thoughts and kill yourself

People don't kill themselves because they've watched a TV show. Suicidal tendencies are born of longstanding issues and I don't think it's wise to blame a TV show since all that does is ignore the real cause.

The show can be the tipping point to all those thoughts though, especially to such a young non fully grown brain..


It's like call off duty and games liken that turning kids into zombies a bit
