Suicidal thoughts - Crisis Plan
How do I make a crisis plan?
A crisis plan is sometimes called a safety plan. You should make a plan before you are in crisis, but it is never too late to start. You may need someone to help you to make a crisis plan such as a friend or support worker.
The aim of a crisis plan is to think about what support you need when you are in crisis. You could make a list of things that you could do to help yourself. You can write down the names and numbers of people who would be able to help you. You may find it helpful to include the good things in your life or things that you are looking forward to as part of the plan.
There is no set way for how a crisis plan should look. There is a crisis plan template in the Suicidal thoughts factsheet which you can download here.
