GREENWICH, Conn. -- The Netflix series “13 Reasons Why” is getting a lot of buzz for its storyline centered around a young girl who commits suicide -- not all of it good.
The show has proven controversial, in part because of its edgy and sometimes graphic content, with many area schools sending out warnings to parents that it glamorizes suicide.
To help aid in the conversation the Second Congregational Church in Greenwich is hosting a panel discussion Wednesday, May 17 at 7 p.m. The free event is open to the greater Greenwich community and all are encouraged to attend with their teenagers. Topics will include bullying, cyberbullying and suicide prevention.
- Reverend Maxwell Grant: Senior Minister at Second Congregational Church

- Liz Perry: Head of Upper School, St. Luke’s, New Canaan
- Peyton Larkin: Senior at Greenwich High School
The Second Congregational Church is at 139 E Putnam Ave., (203) 869-9311. For more information contact Laurie Meek at firstname.lastname@example.org.
