Testimonials

Mike O'Hara

Founder - Start Within

“The importance of the R;pple tool cannot be understated. This tool provides a contemporary, targeted approach to intervention. The most encouraging aspect of R;pple for me is the ability to promote a crucial message of empathy and hope at the most challenging moments imaginable. Not only does the tool provide a method of intervention, but demonstrates an amazing functionality to signpost the individual to bespoke support. To see the amount of online content available on the promotion of suicide and advice on how to take one’s own life has been an enormous shock to me. The work that R;pple are doing to address this issue and convey a message of hope and optimism is of the utmost importance, is long overdue and should be supported by anyone who values human life.”

Steve Phillip

Founder of The Jordan Foundation

“One look at the front page of Ripple's website will tell you that there are 1.2 million internet searches for suicide methods and ways to commit suicide every month. Take a moment to process that amount and then ask yourself how likely is it that someone you know undertook one of those searches? If you don't know, then you are fortunate that R;pple Suicide Prevention is doing something about it. Alice lost her brother to suicide and discovered that he had made harmful searches online. We, as a community, have to do more to prevent people believing that suicide is the only way to stop feeling the way they do. Get behind Alice and get behind R;pple”

Tom Garrett

Founder of The Black Country Blokes

“I think the difficulties of being younger now are so hard. With all the media, movies and music. It’s easy to get dragged into the darker sides of the net. Which is why I think the ripple tool effect will be a great idea. If we know people are searching these things on Google, the tool would be an instant alert or reaction. Hopefully drawing people away and contacting someone for help.”

Paul Hendry

Caroline Nokes

MP for Romsey and Southampton North

“I think the statistics you included in the R;pple attachment brought such a stark reminder that suicides have increased this last year, and it is very sadly young men who are the most at risk.  We know the pandemic has had a huge impact on people’s mental wellbeing and there are no easy solutions to finding the right balance between protecting people physically as well as mentally.”

Mary Anne Crook

“Alice is a committed and determined campaigner for an internet based approach to suicide intervention and a superb networker and communicator. Her ability to engage others towards a coordinated and collaborating approach is truly impressive. Het knowledge of internet systems and data protection issues is extensive.”

Alastair Deards

Founder of Mental Health Change

“Where do I start with a woman with unbelievable resilience. Alice is proactive, strong in the face of adversity. She has created a proposal that if it can be implemented will save numerous lives. It’s an honour to know Alice. She has my full support for Ripple, pure genius.”

Rick Nash

CEO of Aamica

“Alice is an extraordinary young woman. The loss of her brother Josh to suicide in November 2020 led to the establishment of 'Ripple'-a game changer in how people searching online for methods to harm themselves can be pro-actively supported to seek alternative ways to deal with their distress. Not only has Alice pointed out a huge gap in the way we provide mitigation services but has the technical skills to have developed the resource itself-amazing.”

Risa Stein

CEO of Aamica US

“Alice Hendy is a visionary. She’s a rare and extraordinary person. She’s personable, passionate, and mission driven. In a matter of weeks following the tragic death by suicide of her younger brother, Alice set her despondence aside and seized upon the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others. She formulated R;pple, created beautiful and easy-to-digest materials and conceptualized an attractive and secure prevention approach to suicide that has been long overlooked by others in the mental health space. Ms. Hendy will save lives through R;pple. It is my immense honour to support and collaborate with such a uniquely gifted individual.”
