Stay Alive app: a pocket suicide prevention resource for the UK


A new, free app is being launched on World Suicide Prevention Day (10 September 2014), offering help and support to people who are thinking about suicide or who know someone who is.


The Stay Alive app is the first of its kind to offer UK-wide information on where to get help. It has been developed by Brighton-based charity Grassroots Suicide Prevention and digital company Switchplane and is supported by Network Rail and Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.  Stay Alive is a pocket suicide prevention resource whose user is only a few presses away from crisis support, up-to-date resources, guidance and interactive tools to support suicide prevention. 

The app is highly customisable: as well as links to services, the app includes a ‘LifeBox’ section where you can upload pictures which remind you why you want to stay alive and a mini-safety plan for use in a crisis.  Other features include a myth-busting section about suicide, research-based reasons for living and useful information and strategies about what to do if you have thoughts of suicide.


Chris Brown, Director of Grassroots, said: “Many of us have been affected by suicide in some way, and have some understanding of how important it is for help to be available and accessible when needed.  This app literally puts a suicide prevention resource in people’s pockets, making help easier to find in times of need.”

Ian Stevens, Programme Manager (Suicide Prevention), Network Rail: “The rail industry operates through the very heart of communities devastated by suicide and these events impact deeply on our own people too.  It is important that we support such communities by doing what we can to address this issue and offering our support to those seeking to affect change within their own neighbourhoods and beyond.  We are proud to support this innovative solution which allows people thinking about suicide to find the help they need, day or night, no matter where they may live.”

Emma Wadey, Director of Nursing Standards and Safety at Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, said: "Suicide is everyone's business; it devastates so many lives no matter who you are, where you work or where you live. We want to use every method available to us to make Sussex, and beyond, a place where people thinking about suicide are supported and helped in their workplace and their community."
