Safe Plan

 

Creating a Safe Plan

Safety planning is an important process for each survivor. There are ideas for safety planning while in a relationship, after leaving, if you experience stalking, and many other scenarios. Your personal safety plan will change over time and depending on the situation. Your safety plan should include your children. Consider your safety at work, home, anywhere you may go. You may also contact an advocate at Deaf Hope for assistance. Visit Deaf Hope’s safety planning and resource pages for more information.
