Preparing for Season 2 of ’13 Reasons Why’

May 15, 2018

Netflix’s ’13 Reasons Why’ Season 2 will be released on Friday May 18, 2018.  While the complete and specific story line and topic/issues have not been disclosed, it’s very likely that S2 will pick-up and carry-forward with many of the same topics/situations as S1.

In research commissioned by Netflix following S1, key findings include:

 

  • 80% of young adults and adolescents reported that peers deal with similar problems
  • 72% believed the show is beneficial to be viewed by individuals in their age group(s)
  • 57% of teens felt more comfortable discussing mental health concerns with close friends
  • 66% of teens reported using the Internet as a tool for personal mental health information
    • 63% asked and/or spoke to a friend
    • 51% reported that there are not enough resources to help teens with suicidal ideations
  • 71% reported discussing 13RW and/or mental health with parents
  • 81% reported discussing 13RW with Friends
  • 49% reported reaching out to a parent or friend for support following 13RW
  • About 80% of viewers reported that watching 13RW made them realize their actions and how it could affect others

Based on 13RW-S1 and Dr. DeQuincy Lezine’s book ’13 Answers to the 13 Reasons Why’, these St. Louis area providers may be helpful connections for support.
