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 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.
Risk impact

Ripple Tool requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Ripple Tool is probably trust-worthy. Prefer other publishers if available. Exercise caution when installing this add-on.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that an Edge add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Edge add-on reputation on Edge Add-on Store, the amount of time the Edge add-on has been around, and other signals about the Edge add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing an Edge add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
