Technology can be used to provide personalized suicide prevention interventions based on an individual’s reported thoughts and mood. Coping strategies and resources can be delivered in times of increased distress. If the Mobile Application to Prevent Suicide (MAPS) is found to be an effective tool, it is easy to distribute to young adults with recent suicidal ideation during care transitions and beyond.
