Mental Health Safety Plans

3 July 2020 Posted by

A Mental Health Safety Plan is a preventative tool designed to help support those who struggle with mental wellbeing.

It may be difficult to think clearly when you feel really low or incredibly overwhelmed. It may be difficult to ignore these feelings. Safety plans are best created when not in crisis.

By having a safety plan, you’re making sure that there are strategies you can use to keep yourself safe. These can help you feel more in control when everything feels out of control. Think of your safety plan as your ‘mental health first-aid kit’. It includes different things that will help you through a crisis.
