R;pple is a social enterprise set up by Alice Hendy who sadly lost her only sibling, Josh, to suicide. Josh passed away at 21 years of age on the 25th November 2020. After examining Josh's phone and laptop following his death, Alice found that Josh had been researching techniques to take his own life via the internet.

 

To ensure more help and support is given to individuals in mental health crisis and searching for harmful content online, Alice set up R;pple Suicide Prevention.

 

R;pple is an online monitoring tool designed to present a visual page on a user’s device the second they are flagged as searching for a harmful keyword or phrase highlighted within the R;pple monitoring tool configuration. Keywords and phrases include any words or terminology which have been identified as displaying potentially damaging online content.

The R;pple page is presented before harmful online search results are displayed, and act as an interception to encourage users to visit a mental health support page from one of our charity partners as an alternative to viewing harmful online results.

 

R;pple are raising funds to support the build of an innovative and life saving online tool designed to encourage users in crisis to utilise a range of mental health support services available to them and stop lives being lost to suicide.
