The Just in Case app makes it easy to provide potentially life-saving information to your students. Now there is a smartphone app that carries critical contact and support information specific to your campus to students on the device they have with them all the time, their phones. Highly accessible information is more likely to be acted on, “just in case” the need arises.
The app updates quickly, works on all mobile platforms and can be extended to include additional information, such as sexual assault resources, at any time.
Research shows that impulsivity plays an important role in suicide attempts. Providing the Just in Case app to your students says “We care.” Just the time it takes to flip through the resources on the app may help a vulnerable moment pass, and a conversation can begin.
