Safety Planning

What is Safety Planning?

If you are in an abusive relationship, or planning to leave an abusive relationship, it is a good idea to prepare a Safety Plan.

A safety plan is a personalized, useful tool to help you stay safe. Safety planning can include alerting neighbors, friends and relatives to your situation so they can help, writing down a list of important documents to take with you, taking legal action, and how to cope emotionally.

A good safety plan will be personalized to your unique situation, and will provide guidance on how to navigate different scenarios.
