4. Why was R;pple created?

Alice Hendy lost her only sibling, her brother Josh, on 25th November 2020 to suicide at 21 years old.

Josh had been researching techniques to take his own life via harmful internet searches. The content  available online following a search of this nature currently provides mental health support in one  format; a helpline.

To ensure more help and support is given to individuals searching for harmful content online, Alice set  up R;pple Suicide Prevention. R;pple provides an immediate, vibrant display on a user’s device once  they have been flagged as searching for online content relating to self-harm or suicide.

R;pple consists of a powerful message of hope as well as providing a selection of mental health  support resources in a range of different communicative options (call, text, webchat) from established  mental health charities.

We  provide people with a voice, choice, empowerment and control at a time when they are most vulnerable.
