Creating your safety plan
For each step, think about what will work for you and enter it in the space available for free text. For example, if watching The Simpsons distracts you from suicidal thoughts and supporting Carlton Football Club is one of your reasons to live, make sure you write that down. Your safety plan should reflect you – things that are helpful, as well as what to look out for or avoid. If you get stuck at any point, you can tap ‘Give me suggestions’ for some ideas other people have found useful.
You can scroll through each step of the safety plan by swiping either left or right on the screen, or tapping the left or right arrows at the bottom corners of the screen. Alternatively, you can skip to any step of the safety plan by selecting the menu icon at the top left corner of the screen, then selecting the step you’re looking for.
From the home screen, tap the ‘Edit my plan’ button to make any changes.
