Mental Health Awareness Week: From her brother’s suicide to preventing 30 others from doing the same

It’s the beginning of Mental Health Awareness week – and we’ll of course be covering various stories relating to mental health over the next seven days.

Suicide is the number one leading cause of death for people in the UK aged 20 to 34 years old, and there are 1.2 million global internet searches for ways to take your own life every month.

One person looking to help people at their lowest, is Alice Hendy, the CEO and Founder of R;pple Suicide Prevention – an online search intervention tool providing support to individuals.

I spoke to Alice a little earlier on about the issue.

You can go to the Ripple Suicide Prevention website for more information.
