Crisis Prevention Plans

Safety Plans are how to safety proof your home.

Crisis Prevention Plans (CPPs):

  • Help guide you in making choices and taking actions that help to defuse difficult situations and prevent them from reaching a crisis.

CPPs are not:

  • The solution to the crisis if one occurs
  • A guarantee that a crisis will not occur

When making a CPP, you will make a plan for managing difficult situations by finding, understanding, and talking about:

  • Triggers that lead to negative or troublesome feelings and behaviors
  • Warning signs that show a situation is headed in a negative direction and needs intervention
  • Skills that youth can use to help themselves
  • Actions that parents/caregivers can take to help support their child
  • Others that can be called upon to help manage the situation
