Netflix to include introductory warning video in 13 Reasons Why episodes

The introduction of the video comes with the findings of Netflix's global research study with Northwestern University that aimed to help the streaming service understand the types of conversations that were being had about the first season of the popular series, which is based on Jay Asher's 2007 book of the same name.

"When you press play on series, that will be the first thing everyone sees", Wright said of the video, which features Langford (Hannah), Minnette (Clay), Justin Prentice (Bryce) and Alisha Boe (Jessica).

"But if you are struggling with these issues yourself, the series may not be right for you", warns Davis.

Minette adds, "If you ever feel you need someone to talk with, reach out to a parent, a friend, a school counsellor, or an adult you trust, call a local helpline or go to 13ReasonsWhy.info".

Many educators and school mental health professionals spoke out against the depiction of Hannah's suicide, warning parents that it "could contribute to a "contagion effect" among students with mental illness and linking it to self-harm and suicide threats among young people", The Washington Post's Moriah Balingit reported.

The thriller premiered at the Tokyo International Film Festival in 2016 and showed in the Philippines at the Pistang Pelikulang Pinoy (PPP) in August previous year.

The first series began with a USA teenager called Hannah, played by Katherine Langford, taking her own life.

Before season 2 starts, Netflix is taking measures to open up more lines of communication for those who watch the show and might be at risk. "Today, Northwestern released the results of that study".

But US star Selena Gomez, who is one of 13 Reasons Why's executive producers, has previously spoken out and defended the programme.

"If a child is someone with known suicide risks and vulnerability, then I think for those youth, and adults frankly, there's just not a lot of upside of exposing them", she said.

"It's very graphic, especially the two-minute scene where she slits her wrists in a bathtub", he told KTVU about the show.
