Safety Planning

A safety plan is a personalized plan that an advocate can create with you to help you stay safe while you are in a relationship, or planning to leave a relationship. A safety plan can include things like how to talk to family and friends about the abuse, how to get safe when physical danger is imminent, or even just list emergency phone numbers for relatives

It’s important to know that your safety plan may change everyday, and there isn’t one plan that works for everyone. Each individual knows their situation best and your safety plan should reflect that. And while some things in your safety plan may seem trivial or obvious, it is important to know that when you are in a traumatic situation, you may not be able to recall even the most obvious things. It’s important to keep your written safety plan with you to help guide your decision making in the most stressful situations.
