@NikNik@Shaz51my understanding is that a safety plan is there when someone experiences suicidal thoughts and/or feelings. It doesn't mean that they are suicidal, just having thoughts. Its purpose is to make the person feel safe. It steps through things the person can do themselves first and then gradually brings in support people to help the person.
