Suicidal thoughts can seem like they will last forever – but these thoughts and feelings pass with time. Having a plan in place that can help guide you through difficult moments can help you cope and keep you safe. This safety plan is designed so that you can start at the beginning and continue through the steps until you feel safe.
In this safety plan app, 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.
This Suicide Safety Plan is one of six components of an application suite called MoodTools. MoodTools aims to create a free, convenient, and easy-to-use Android smartphone application suite that provides empirically-supported tools to combat clinical depression on a large scale.
