What is a safety plan?
A safety plan is a practical plan that is personalized to your needs and is designed to help you avoid dangerous situations. Your safety plan outlines the best way for you to respond if you are in danger or feeling triggered. Planning can be used while you are still with your abuser or after the relationship has ended. Crisis center advocates are available 24/7 to help craft or review your personal safety plan, to discuss safe options like emergency shelter, and provide emotional support.
