What is a Safety Plan Cards Worksheet?

A safety plan is a plan that you make to avoid any crises and emergency situations if you are somebody who is at the risk of attempting suicide, self-harm or mental breakdown. You make a safety plan to deal with that situation beforehand. It is a written set of instructions to be followed at the time of emergency. It will have a series of gradually escalating steps that you will follow, proceeding from one step to the next, until you are safe.

When you are at risk of suicide, self-harm or any other serious emergency situation but haven’t reached the level of severity required for involuntary hospitalization, it's common practice to create a Safety Plan. A safety plan is actually a contingency plan that you prepare for yourself whenever you are headed towards a crisis.
