What it is

Beyond Now is an app for people to make a step-by-step plan to help them stay safe when they are overwhelmed and having thoughts of suicide.

The app assists people to create a structured plan that they work through when experiencing suicidal thoughts, feelings, distress or crisis and involves identifying:

  • Recognising warning signs
  • Creating a safe space
  • Identifying reasons to live
  • Internal coping strategies
  • Socialisation strategies for distraction & support
  • Trusted contacts for assisting with a crisis
  • Professional contacts for assisting with a crisis.

How does it help

Research has shown having a safety plan can be useful for reducing the intensity of suicidal thoughts and increasing people’s ability to cope with them.

By deliberately creating a personalised plan to stay safe, the tool enables you to reach for things and people that will help when facing your darkest moments.
