Suicide Prevention: Downloadable Safety Plan Template

A safety plan is designed to guide someone you through a mental health crisis, pointing you to help resources and helping you feel safer, in more control, and in less distress.

Keep your plan accessible in case you have thoughts of hurting yourself. You can also share your safety plan with a trusted friend or family member who can act as a safety partner and help you walk through the steps you’ve outlined for yourself.
