    R;pple Suicide Prevention founder Alice Hendy... on creating a ripple effect of change

    ​​**This episode of the Gurls Talk podcast discusses sensitive topics surrounding suicide and the experience of losing a loved one to suicide.

    R;pple Suicide Prevention was founded in 2021 by Alice Hendy after she tragically lost her only sibling, Josh, to suicide. 

    Josh had been searching for techniques to take his own life through harmful internet searches. Witnessing the lack of appropriate support available online, Alice was inspired to take action and R;pple was born.

The best podcast out there

I’ve been listening to Gurls talk since day dot. And I love it as much now as I did in the beginning. Adwoa is a fantastic host & interviewer, who lets people speak while she listens and then speaks with such ease of sensitivity and understanding on very important topics. 10/10 Thank you! 🙏🏼
