"Hannah...I love you...and I let you go" Those are the words I was able to say six months ago, and now can finally share with you as my journey on @13reasonswhy has officially come to an end...as most of you know, this was my first ever job and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to tell Hannah's story so fully in season 1, and to be asked back for a season 2. Thank you to @netflix@paramountpics @anoncontent , the incredible producers, creatives, cast and crew for making these last 2 years so special. And to all of you here - Thankyou for filling my life with love and light 🙏 This show will always be a special part of my life, and regardless of whether Hannah is there or not, I know that I will continue to strive to do work that is meaningful and has a positive impact - whether that be in film, music, or any other form of art. There is a lot coming up this next year, and I can't wait to share it with you 💖#hannahbaker
Hannah Baker, played by Katherine Langford.
Langford, who is the focus of season one and two, plays a troubled teen who takes her own life after a series of incidents with her fellow peers at school.
She leaves behind a series of tapes for all the people who she blamed for her reason for taking her life.
Led by Clay Jensen (Dylan Minnette), the show touches are a lot of social issues and has been controversial in the way these issues have been portrayed.
The social impact of the show has been so immense that a crisis hotline stemmed from the show, itself.
The organisation offers a service where people can talk to someone if they're dealing with an issue and need assistance.

There's also a discussion series on the various issues addressed in the series. The video below talks about the many forms of bullying and features many of the cast members.
You can find out more about the organisation and also watch various videos on social issues that young children (and adults) face today.
The show is not for the faint-hearted and contains a lot of very sensitive scenes.
As quoted from Wikipedia, the series revolves around seventeen-year-old high school student, Clay Jensen, and his deceased female friend Hannah Baker, who has committed suicide after failing to cope with the culture, gossip and lack of support from her friends and her school. A box of cassette tapes recorded by Hannah in the lead up to her suicide detail thirteen reasons why she ended her life.
