Abstract

Part research blog and part creative writing, Teardrop Teens and Happy Pills examines how young adult media portrays the sensitive issues of depression, self-harm, and suicide. Through the research blog, media such as "13 Reasons Why" and "Dear Evan Hansen" are analyzed, while the novel "Happy Pills" is a take on how to write a successful mental health narrative.
