Suicidal thoughts can seem like they will last forever – but these thoughts and feelings pass with time. This app is designed to support those dealing with suicidal thoughts and help prevent suicide.
Having a plan in place that can help guide you through difficult moments can help you cope and keep you safe. A safety plan is designed so that you can start at the beginning and continue through the steps. You can customize your own warning signs that a crisis may be developing, coping strategies for dealing with suicidal urges, places for distraction, friends and family members you can reach out to, professionals you can call, methods of making your environment safe, and your own important reasons for living.
If following your safety plan is not enough to stem a suicidal crisis, then this app also contains an easy-to-access list of emergency resources so that help is just a tap away. For long-term recovery, we provide a thorough guide to dealing with suicidal thoughts.
This application is open source and we are looking for contributors! https://github.com/suicidesafetyplan/safetyplan-ios/
This update contains optimizations to the Plan page and many backend changes. Thanks to shayneptorres on Github for his work on this!
Ratings and Reviews
Way better than paper!
I have recommended this several times to others & many different mental health professionals. I have received very positive feedback from them. The just plain love it!
I had & have outstanding mental health care by the VA. However, a safety plan on a sheet of paper, upon leaving the hospital or in the course of outpatient treatment, is not practical. It’ll get lost, destroyed in the laundry, the dog will eat it, it might be shredded accidentally, or just plain wear out. Most people carry around their cell phone. This app is easy to use, wise to have, has a great layout, & was thoughtfully designed.
I recommend you review your plan every 3 months & write down what changes you think your plan needs then review with your psychotherapist before updating it. If you don’t have the energy to devote to updating it (yes, depression can do that), talk it out every 3 months with your psychotherapist (you are worth it, darn it!). I would give this app 10 stars if that were possible.
Great, helpful app!!!
I’m enjoying interacting with this app, but would like to suggest an improvement. I’d like to see an integrated journal functionality, to be able to track thoughts, events, etc... nothing elaborate, simple note taking capabilities, with time/date stamp, or presented in a calendar style. Aside from that, its a great app!!!
You get out of it what you put in
This is a great app to have to remind you of stuff when you might not be in the best state of mind to remember it. It only works if you’re honest with yourself and make sure to include and write down all your warning signs and stuff like that. I’ve used this app for years and it’s very helpful. It’d be nice if there was a cloud save/backup feature for when you get a new device.
