A new 'Stay Alive' suicide prevention app which lets users upload content to remind them of reasons to keep living has saved scores of lives. The award-winning app is the first of its kind in the UK, and has been downloaded 6000 times since its launch.
Users can access up-to-date resources, crisis support helplines, and interactive tools to help them during difficult times. The innovative app also includes a 'Lifebox' where users can upload pictures to remind them why they want to keep living, written lists of reasons to stay alive, and a mini safety plan for times of crisis.
Grassroots Suicide Prevention based in Brighton, East Sussex, created the app in collaboration with Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust to help people who may be considering suicide, are worried about someone, or are bereaved by suicide. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.
