The Ripple Effect is a website launched earlier this year that asks people affected by suicide in rural communities to share their stories.

The website aims to break down the stigma that exists in rural community and use the insights to create more appropriate responses.

The social isolation of life on the farm is a key factor in the high rates of suicide in rural and farming communities.
