Following on from World Suicide Prevention Day on 10th September, we are keen to show the progress that has been made in our Suicide Safer strategy. Ripple Suicide Prevention charity have developed a browser extension (R;pple) for computers and desktops to provide more help and support to individuals who are conducting searches related to self-harm or suicide online.
As part of our wider commitment to the wellbeing of our staff/students, we will be one of the first organisations in the country to implement R;pple across our [number] devices from [date].
Suicide is the leading cause of death in people aged 20 to 34 in the UK. On average, over 5 young people take their lives each day and over 200 schoolchildren are lost to individuals dying by suicide.
