About the Course


The Safety Planning course is part of the Mental Health Ally Series and covers the topic of safety planning, for instances of intimate partner violence and suicidal ideation. Although Safety Planning is a standalone course, it is best taken after the Suicidal Behavior Competency course as it both furthers its content and offers practical ways to help others who are at risk for suicide.

This course was created for those who want to help someone in their life who is in an abusive relationship, or who is experiencing suicidal ideation. Based on up-to-date statistics from governing bodies and relevant scholarly articles, this course is full of learner-focused activities, live-filmed videos, and attractive animations.  

NOTE: We recommend completing Mental Health Competency 1 before beginning this course and any other Mental Health Ally Series courses.

Estimated Course Length: 1 Hour
