Aside from the video, Netflix has added a downloadable viewing guide to help parents and teens talk about the show's hard themes, according to the online statement. But if you struggling with these issues yourself, this series may not be right for you, or you may want to watch it with a trusted adult.

Other stats include: More than 50 percent apologized to peers for the way they'd previously treated them, and nearly 75 percent said they try to be more considerate to others after the show.

If you're a fan of the Netflix drama "13 Reasons Why", you probably have more than 13 reasons to hate Bryce Walker, the show's high school bully and rapist.

Wright acknowledged that the first season of 13 Reasons Why launched a wave of controversy as it touched on various topics that became uncomfortable for some people, to say the least.

More than 50% reached out to someone to apologize for how they had treated them.

Research found that after the first series of the show premiered past year, there was a 26 percent increase in internet searches for "how to commit suicide", with many countries introducing age ratings on the platform to prevent children under the age of 18 from watching it.

Some school districts a year ago took the step of sending letters to parents warning them about what their children may be watching on "13 Reasons Why".

Season 2 of 13 Reasons Why will also include a special introduction at the start the season in which the show's actors discuss the different ways viewers can receive help should they seek it. "I am so incredibly thankful to everyone involved in 13 Reasons Why, for depicting each of the issues involved in the story in a truly realistic manner that has and will continue to help address such hard points of discussion". Instead it "emboldens" them to believe the show is playing a role in critical conversations.

"The hope is that the steps we're taking now will help support more meaningful conversations as Season 2 rolls out later this year", said Netflix vice president of original series Brian Wright in the announcement. The search terms included suicide methods, suicide hotlines and suicide prevention.

Sixty-two to 74 percent of parents also said they wanted more resources from mental health professionals.
