It could be that New Zealand have rules about how you show that kind of content? I don’t think the Beeb would show or broadcast anything focusing on suicide that didn’t have warnings and links to helplines and information. But I think in the UK all that stuff is voluntary and the main broadcasters all do it.

Also, Netflix isn’t regulated by Ofcom in this country, because they don’t broadcast. And Parliament hasn’t caught up with streaming-only media yet.
