I hope you don’t mind, but I have come across a piece of innovative technology that I believe [your company] can directly benefit from. R;pple is a digital tool, which if a user searches for harmful content online, they will first be guided through a filter of breathing exercises and then very simple, uncluttered and calmly presented strategies and forums, help lines and mental health services they can access both now and longer term: accompanied with messages of hope and encouragement to keep safe.
Alice Hendy created the technology and set up the in memory of her younger brother, Josh, who she lost to suicide. Alice found that Josh had been researching techniques to take his own life via harmful internet searches.
You can read why R;pple exists and how it will continue to make such a difference to those suffering with their mental health by watching a full deep dive into R;pple here.
I hope you can support Alice in her mission to get people the mental health support they need at a time when they are most vulnerable. Thank you for your support.
