“Why?” - It's a question that is often asked when someone dies by suicide.
 
It's also the question asked in the now popular Netflix series “13 Reasons  Why.” It’s a fictional show about a teenager who takes her own life and leaves clues on why she died by suicide.
 
The series has people talking across the country about suicide, bullying and rape and has started a public conversation about a private struggle.
 
414ward spoke with Gena Orlando with the American Foundation For Suicide Prevention to discuss this topic further.
