What is it?

This Safety Plan document can be used with a young person to explore their suicidal thoughts in more detail and formulate a plan for staying safe. The young person keeps the plan and is encouraged to follow it step by step when they feel suicidal. With the consent of the young person, the plan can be shared with appropriate adults in their life such as family or school/college staff. They can support them to implement the plan.
