Beyond Now is a suicide safety planning app from Beyond Blue. Safety planning can help if you're having trouble coping, or when you or someone you know is experiencing suicidal thoughts or feelings.

This is a convenient and confidential safety plan which fits in your pocket and that you can access and update at any time.
