Suicide falls with in the top leading causes of Death in the United States. There is so much that happens and so much going on in people’s lives that sometimes one does not know what is going on… most times, people are decided to harm themselves and no one can stop them… but now you can help prevent it, even if you didn’t know how. Today, SAMSHA launched their new Suicide Safe mobile application.
You can learn the five steps for SAFE-T.
- See the SAFE-T in action and explore interactive sample case studies.
- Locate treatment facility options, filtered by type and distance and share locations and resources.
- And quickly access and share crisis lines or other resources with someone in need.
- It’s what you need to help and get help.
- We defiantly recommend this app!
