Staying Safe from suicidal thoughts

This helps you develop your own suicide Safety Plan, which includes information about how to make a Safety Plan for anyone struggling with suicidal thoughts or supporting someone else. It's designed to offer hope, compassion and practical ideas on how to find your own way forward. For more information see the Staying Safe web site.

Stay Alive App

The Stay Alive app, which is free, is full of information and tools to help you stay safe when in a crisis. The app can be used if you're having thoughts of suicide or if you're worried about someone else who may be considering suicide. It includes a safety plan, customisable reasons for living and a tool that allows you to store photos and memories that are important to you.

The app is available for Android and Apple phones, and the app content can be downloaded as a printable PDF.

Help is at Hand

This is a detailed guide providing information with emotional and practical support to those affected by suicide. Those bereaved by a suicide are at increased risk of mental health and emotional problems and may be at higher risk of suicide themselves, so receiving the right support is essential.
