VA’s National Center for PTSD has released a standalone Safety Plan app for suicide prevention. Veterans can learn about this new app on the VA App Store and access links to download it from Apple’s App Store or Google Play.

The Safety Plan app helps Veterans create a personalized, 6-step action plan to keep themselves safe in a crisis. The app can be used by anyone who has experienced suicidal thoughts. It helps you identify personal coping strategies and sources of support — giving suicidal thoughts time to decrease and become more manageable.
