Instructional Level: Intermediate

Suicide is a significant public health issue and poses a considerable burden on behavioral health systems. Practitioners are in an ideal position to improve suicide prevention rates due to their links with hospitals, general practice, health care, and behavioral health systems. Safety planning in suicide prevention is an intervention that has been shown to be effective in further reducing the incidence of suicide by supporting positive planning with persons experiencing suicidal thoughts and behaviors. This training will discuss the components of the Stanley-Brown Safety Planning model.


  1. Identify components of evidence-based safety planning.
  2. Discuss warning signs of self-directed violence.
  3. Describe eight incremental steps of safety planning.
