Resource description:

The Stay Alive app is a suicide prevention resource for the UK, full of useful information and tools to help you stay safe in crisis. 

You can use it if you are having thoughts of suicide or if you are concerned about someone else who may be considering suicide.

The app includes:

  • A safety plan with customisable reasons for living 
  • A LifeBox where you can store photos and memories that are important to you
  • Strategies for staying safe and tips on how to stay grounded when you’re feeling overwhelmed
  • Guided breathing exercises and an interactive Wellness Plan.

The app also links you directly to local and national crisis resources, with space to add in your own too.

Stay Alive is one of a set of wellbeing apps signposted by NHS England for NHS people. Find out more about Stay Alive on the Grassroots Suicide Prevention website.
