Ratings and Reviews

Must have App

Laura Burks (Zermeno)

This is a great app. I completed the SAFE program dec 1 and love that all my tools are on my cellphone now. I have access to them without pulling out my paper logs in front of people. You can email your logs to therapist for instance, save them or edit them. Its a must app for anyone recovering from self-injury or trying to figure out why they self injure and start to see those patterns. It's a new app so I expect some bugs but its so worth it and if I have an issue with the app the people who developed the app get right back to me. Excellent customer service. I will be downloading this app in my new tablet as well.

Update: app works great now back up and running. I see new things have been added. Called SAFE tonight and the helped remind me of the logs. When struggling always go back to the basics. SAFE is what has gotten my life back on track I couldn't have gotten this far without this program and I am forever grateful. They provided me with a foundation on which to build on, and it's what I've done since. Like SAFE states we as the patient may leave SAFE but SAFE never leaves us.

For the app I am suggesting a positive accomplishments list. A staff member started me on this in 2012 and I am still adding to it today. It's been a life savor sometimes, even if it's a reminder that SAFE is there to help.

SAFE saved my life and I am for ever grateful for all that this program, the staff have given/offered me.

Great Self Injury App!!!!!

Sarah Brecht

This is the perfect app for someone struggling with self injury! Chalk full of tools like all the logs, to help you over come self injury, plus you can email them to your therapist! If you want a better understanding of self injury, this app is also for you!!!! Frequently asked questions and information for friends, family, parents, teachers, mental health workers and so on!!!!! Well worth the price!!!! I highly recommend it!!!!

Good potential but

Rachel Sanders

I just spent $2.99 on this app, and it does not work at all with voiceover. Has a visually impaired person, I hope that in future updates this app is more accessible.
