R;pple Suicide Prevention
R;pple Suicide Prevention was founded by Alice Hendy. Alice lost her only sibling, 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.
R;pple’s vision is to ensure all users searching for harmful content online are presented with an opportunity of hope that things can and will get better. Through R;pple, an individual feeling despair and researching harmful content will be urged to instead seek the mental health support they deserve and need in a way that works best for them.
R;pple is in the very early stages, but Alice has the support of several MPs and has recently been nominated for an Entrepreneur of Excellence Award; she has also been recognised as a Rising Star for 2021.
