About this app

This app is a pocket suicide prevention resource for the UK, packed full of useful information and tools to help you stay safe in crisis. You can use it if you are having thoughts of suicide or if you are concerned about someone else who may be considering suicide.

In addition to the resources, the app includes a safety plan, customisable reasons for living, and a LifeBox where you can store photos that are important to you.

You can also read the tips on how to stay grounded when you’re feeling overwhelmed, try the guided-breathing exercises and support your own wellness by creating your own interactive Wellness Plan.

The app links you directly to local and national crisis resources, so you won't need to carry around slips of paper with contact details on, it's all stored there within the app. If the resource isn't listed, simply add in your own.

Grassroots Suicide Prevention is a charity that supports communities to prevent suicide. We teach suicide prevention skills to community members and professionals. We work hard to raise awareness of suicide prevention and reduce the stigma surrounding suicide. Grassroots Suicide Prevention is not a crisis or helpline service.

This app is a great resource that will surely help many, but after going over every last page I could find that was relevant to me in the app, I have found no aid to my situation. The whole premise of the advice give is the big "things MAY/MIGHT/MAYBE get better" and I'm sick of hearing it. It's like sitting at a slot machine with someone to the side telling you that "you might win loads of money" it's something placed down to chance with no actual reassurance

Great app, but recently every time I try and open it on my Android it glitches and doesn't open. Can you advise a fix? Edit: I restarted my phone but unfortunately that hasn't resolved the issue. When I click on tools it closes, and I get a notification that says 'Uploading scaled image picker'.

*Edit* Hi Rebecca, thank you for your patience. I raised this with our app developers and they have now identified and fixed the issue. We hope StayAlive now works for you again but please let us know if there's any other problems: app@prevent-suicide.org.uk - Best wishes. Grassroots.

App design patchy- some areas it suggests pages to look at but you can't click through; have to go back through menu. Whole point of the app is suicide prevention, but the right crisis services just don't exist.'Find help now' page has a list of national 'crisis' resources, but most aren't 24hrs and won't respond immediately. Only 2 actual crisis ones: Samaritans- but I cant it bring myself to do phone call when feeling on edge- and Shout- the most awful service, with response time of over 1 hr.
