    as a health professional this makes me f*cking furious they didn't do this. i hate the whole 'let's medicate everything!!! because we're too scared to admit we have people skills!!:stars:!'

    ok i assume you may know this. so a safety plan is a list of things to do or resources to call when you are feeling acutely suicidal. the use of telephone counselling, getting out of the house, etc.
    do you live alone?
    do you have people who are aware you have recently been discharged?
    are you connected to community mental health?
