Is your organisation doing enough in mental health and suicide prevention?
A colleague of mine, @Alice Hendy – ripple suicide prevention, has recently set up a charity 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.
To ensure more help and support is given to individuals searching for harmful content online, she set up @Ripple Suicide Prevention Charity 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 calmly presented mental health services they can access both now and longer term: accompanied with messages of hope and encouragement to keep safe.
To date, R;pple technology has been downloaded over 250,000 times, has intercepted 1,863 people from harmful online searches and saved 23 people from taking their life.
