The new Operation Life mobile application is designed to help those at risk deal with suicidal thoughts and is recommended to be used with the support of a clinician.
The app provides on-the-go access to emergency and professional support and self-help tools to help users regain control, keep calm and take action to stay safe. The app also contains web links to relevant online resources, including information on suicide awareness, prevention training and counselling.
The app complements the Operation Life Online website which will help you understand the warning signs of suicide and provide information and resources to help keep you and others safe from suicide. Help is also available for those bereaved by suicide.
Your clinician should refer to the below supporting Clinicians Guide (iOS version and Android version) which provides an overview of the app and a step-by-step guide to help set-up and use the app.
Available to download free from the App Store and Google Play.
Note: some features of this app may not be accessible on earlier model iOS and Android phones.
