What exactly is a safe space?

A mental safe space is where your mind cannot cause you harm. A mental safe space is free from thoughts of hopelessness, isolation and depression.

A physical safe space is a place where you are unable to be hurt in your immediate surroundings. A physical safe space protects those in suicidal distress from hurting themselves.

A societal safe space is where the people and services that surround you do not cause you active harm. A societal safe space – be that your community, your workplace, or anywhere else – supports you when you are in suicidal distress.
