About this app

Suicide Prevention App (SPA) is the world’s first publicly distributed standardized screening and response planning tool that empowers you with the professional skills needed to help someone in time of need from anywhere in the world.

With an easy-to-follow step-by-step process, SPA walks you through a best-practice standard way to ask the right questions about self-harm and suicide.

After asking the right questions, this tool identifies the general safety concern based on the answers you receive. To add to your support, this tool then populates an individualized response plan to assist you through providing appropriate and effective support based on the current safety concerns.

SPA also features an integrated map to locate mental health and medical services near your current location, and single click access to international crisis hotlines and crisis text services (text options currently only functioning for users in the United States).

One of the most advanced and innovative parts of this tool is the assessment report that is provided at the end of the guided walkthrough; this detailed information about risk and protective factors can be used to provide critical information to professionals capable of administering long-term support for the individual you are concerned about.

The future of suicide prevention is when everyone is empowered with the necessary skills needed to ask the right questions about suicide and provide support in a moment’s notice.

Couldn't get local help listings. I used my 4G location, and it would not update from Southern CA. I'm in the Great Lakes region.

I lost my dog Angel in June and without her I felt pretty much alone and missed her and still miss her so much. I felt as if I lost purpose and thought seriously about taking my life. I used this app along with many others to just talk about how I felt. Mainly I was just talking to myself but it helped.
