My Safety Plan Card: For people with thoughts of suicide, this card has contact numbers at the ready to reach out for help as well as symptom management reminders to help ease the urgency of the moment. Print on two sides of business card paper (Avery 5371) and check to see that “letter” paper size and “fit to page” or “actual size” are chosen in the print dialogue box. Try printing on plain paper first to get the size and orientation correct. You will want to print the card on both sides of the paper, one side of each card will have the numbers of national help lines and the other side of each card will have the phone numbers of personal contacts and a place to write reminders of ways to reduce risk when having thoughts of suicide.
