Last week’s e-weekly reviewed what situations might warrant the use of a safety plan and what is included in one. Safety plans typically include resources, both local and possibly hotlines or websites. The goal for this e-weekly is to provide information on some useful resources that could be utilized in a person’s specific safety plan.
