3 For Safety

Updated: Oct 26, 2020

The Stop~Drop and Roll of mental health struggles.


1. Choose your 3. No special tools, places, or people, these 3, a combinations of thought and actions you choose can be done no matter where you are, who you're with or what's going on. 

A thought (person, place or thing) this thought creates a feeling of happiness or calm.

 A action ( physical movement, speaking out loud) that can be done now.

example:

1. Close my eyes. (action)

2. Walking through a garden. (thought)

3. Pinch my right ear lobe. (action)


2. Identify your struggle. Thoughts of harm to self or others, irrationality, strong irritability, panic, uncontrollable emotions.

3. Take action. DO YOUR 3

Plan ahead, know your 3, experience a crisis, DO IT.

* The idea is to find three things that can help you self soothe, and create a mental distraction when you've reached a personal breaking point and need to overcome.
