Ripple Tools provide help to people who are considering self harm
R;pple exists to provide people with a voice, choice, empowerment and control at a time when they are most vulnerable.
The Ripple tool is a browser extension that provides mental health resources to people who are searching for harmful online content relating to self-harm or suicide on the Google, Bing, Duck Duck Go, Baidu, Yandex and Ask.com search engines.
The tool is available to be installed by an individual or integrated on mass within an organisation to provide an additional layer of mental health support for your people. The tool pops up over the search results when a search for a harmful keyword or phrase is conducted. This ensures that anyone experiencing a crisis or struggling with their mental health are provided with a message of hope and an opportunity to gain mental health support and resources in their locality (currently the UK only) that they can call upon for immediate support.
Ripple provides people with a choice of mental health resources that work best for them, including 24/7 services over the telephone, text, webchat and mobile apps.
To test the tool, simply type "ripple test" into your search bar.
