A suicide safety plan can play a vital role in keeping you safe when you’re feeling distressed or suicidal.
Work with a trusted family member or friend, or a professional to develop a suicide safety plan. It is helpful to involve important people around you, as they need to know how best to care for you and keep you safe if you’re feeling suicidal.
Try to find a time when you’re feeling well, calm and clear-headed, rather than when you’re suicidal or distressed.
Write your safety plan down and keep it in a place where you can easily find it when you need it.
