The Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and Grassroots Crisis Intervention have launched a smartphone app for Maryland residents. The “There is Hope” app provides fast and easy access to crisis intervention and suicide prevention support.
The app provides the next steps to someone at risk of taking their life, or for those concerned about family members or friends who are having suicidal thoughts. You’ll find valuable information including:
- Safety planning
- Warning signs
- Risk factors
- Tips on how to talk to someone who is suicidal
- Information about trainings to increase suicidal prevention skills
The app also includes an immediate connection to crisis counselors who will deliver help and hope for preventing suicide.
“There is Hope” app crated with funds from the Maryland Suicide Prevention and Early Intervention Network (MD-SPIN) Grant in Partnership with the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
