WHAT IS A SAFETY PLAN?

A Safety Plan is an important tool for helping an individual navigate suicidal feelings and urges. It can also be a way for you, or someone close to you, to plan how to communicate with one another and understand the individual at risk.

The Akathisia Alliance for Suicide Prevention has made available a downloadable / print out Safety Plan PDF form. Once you print it, have someone you trust help you to fill it out for preventive measures. Then, place it in an easily accessible area of your home.
