The safety planning app that accompanies the video counseling has been finalized and is introduced to the women during their pre-sessions.

A safety plan is a personal and practical plan for the woman to minimize the risk of danger and exposure to violence. The purpose of a safety plan is to protect the woman in the best way possible from future violence. Creating a safety plan is a natural next step after having made a danger assessment of the woman.

The features of the app are emergency contacts, warning signs, strategies, general knowledge about domestic violence, a quick message function, a share my location function, a resource function, a diary, and general settings. The app is free, and available for iOS and Android. Each woman will download the app on her own smartphone from the App Store or the Google Play store and it will be available through the duration of the STOP project.
