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.
