Understanding & Implementing a Safety Plan
A safety plan is a personalized, detailed plan that is created to enhance your safety.
A safety plan can be tailored to a variety of situations including while in an abusive relationship, planning to leave an abusive relationship, or after having already left the relationship. Safety planning around domestic violence in Overland Park should be unique to your individual experience and continue to evolve with your circumstances. Special attention should be given to periods of potential escalations, including leaving the relationship, court hearings/sentencing, holidays/family events, child exchanges, employment changes, etc.
