  • Netflix show 3 Reasons Why

Netflix announced Wednesday that its popular teen drama will now feature a short video ahead of the first episode of each season starring cast members breaking character to offer viewers support. It suggests that if a viewer is struggling with these issues, he or she may want to avoid the show or watch it with a trusted adult.

Changes include the addition of a custom warning video that will play at the start of each season and more resources to help parents and teen viewers, according to a statement from Netflix posted online. The series revolves around Hannah's unexplained suicide - which was shown up close - and the 13 audiotapes she left behind for her classmates, including star Dylan Minnette, who were left to decipher and ultimately understand why she took her life.

Stay tuned for more information when those films and shows will be released.

Researchers also found that, of those asked, 67 to 76 percent of teens and young adults were encouraged to be "more considerate" of how they treat others, 45-60 percent said they had since apologised to someone for their behaviour. The study surveyed 5,400 teenagers, young adults and parents in the US, UK, Australia, New Zealand and Brazil, to find out how the show could be improved and what areas it handled well, MTV reports. In response to the criticism, Netflix added warning cards and crisis hotlines - and they're not stopping there.
