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!

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.

As a therapist- I love it for teens!

I love this for my teen clients, because they often don’t want to reference a hard paper copy of their safety plan. This ensures they will always have their plan on them on their phones and would be more likely to stick to it.

One suggestion for the app would be if there could be an option to “share” your safety plan. This would be helpful to share a child’s plan with their parents so the parents can be on board with safety, or could be helpful for adults who want a spouse or friend or other trusted person to have access to their plan. Otherwise the app is great!!!

Excellent Resource at Your Fingertips

This is a great app that puts a safety plan at a person’s fingertips. I’ve seen safety plans help clients when they are in crisis, yet one of the biggest complaints is that they don’t necessarily have that piece of paper with them….what they do have is their phone! This solves that issue!
