To ensure more help and support is given to individuals searching for harmful content online, Alice set up R;pple. R;pple is a digital tool, which if a user searches for harmful content online, they will first be guided through a filter of breathing exercises and then very simple, uncluttered and calmly presented strategies and forums, help lines and mental health services they can access both now and longer term: accompanied with messages of hope and encouragement to keep safe.
To date, R;pple has been downloaded over 850,000 times, intercepted 3,400 people from harmful online searches and had 24 individuals approach her directly to inform her that R;pple intercepting them online at their most vulnerable point has saved their life.
