Stay Alive app helps people experiencing suicidal thoughts

People who are experiencing suicidal thoughts can get help from a new NHS-backed app.

The Stay Alive app has been developed for people Kent and Medway. It has information and tools to help people stay safe in a crisis.

Its features include:

  • a LifeBox to which they can upload photos from their phones, reminding them of their reasons to stay alive
  • details of people who can help if they are having thoughts of suicide, contactable direct from their device
  • a wellness plan to support recovery, with a place for positive thoughts, inspirations and ideas.

The Stay Alive free app is available to download from the Apple App Store and the Android Google Play Store.
