Safety Planning Intervention is a brief intervention intended to provide people who are experiencing suicidal ideation with a set of concrete strategies to use in order to decrease the risk of suicidal behavior. The safety plan includes coping strategies that may be used and individuals or agencies that can be contacted during a crisis. The Safety Planning Intervention is a collaborative effort between a trained adult, an individual (student), and a guardian or parent. It takes about 30 minutes to complete. The basic steps of a safety plan include (a) recognizing the warning signs of an impending suicidal crisis; (b) using your personal coping strategies; (c) engaging in social settings or contacting others in order to distract from suicidal thoughts; (d) contacting family members or trusted adults who may help to resolve the crisis; (e) contacting mental health professionals or crisis responders; and (f) reducing the availability of means to complete suicide.

SPI is not recommended to be an introductory level suicide prevention training. 

The instructors have been trained by the Texas Health and Human Services. The session will be presented by ESC 20 Project Aware Consultant, Evelyn Crespo, and Behavioral Health Partnership Program Liaison, Brandalyn Haggerty, with The Center for Health Care Services.
