HELP YOUR CLIENTS STAY CONNECTED TO THEIR NETWORK WHEN THEY ARE HAVING THOUGHTS OF SUICIDE.

MY3 is a mobile application (“mobile app”) that is owned and maintained by Link2Health Solutions, Inc., the administrator of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. It was created in partnership with the California Mental Health Services Authority and was funded by the California Mental Health Services Act (Prop. 63). MY3 features a support system, safety plan and resources with the goal of giving your clients a tool to use in a time of need. To learn more about MY3, visit the MY3 About section.

Help your clients identify their support system

Simply add the contact information for three people who know and care about your clients and can help them when they are experiencing thoughts of suicide. These contacts can include friends, family, professional caregivers, or a local crisis hotline. Always be sure your clients tell their contacts that they have included them on MY3 and that they may be contacted when your client is having thoughts of suicide. Also important to note: In any situation, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1.800.273.TALK [8255]) and 911 are there to help them. These numbers come pre-loaded on MY3.

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is free, and connects your clients to their nearest crisis center staffed by trained crisis counselors. It is available any time, day or night, every single day.

Help build your clients' safety plan

You can help your clients customize their safety plan by identifying their warning signs, coping strategies, distractions and personal networks so they can help themselves stay safe. Creating a safety plan with your client can be a helpful tool in your therapeutic relationship. To learn more about how to help your client create their safety plan, visit the MY3 Safety Planning section.

Access important resources

Help personalize your clients’ MY3 by adding other suicide prevention resources and websites that help them feel better and stay safe. A number of different resources are listed in MY3, and can also be found in the MY3 Resources section.
