We, at Zenithech, believed that in order to tackle the challenge, a comprehensive solution was needed that would include:

  1. An app for the person at risk for suicide which provides them with helpful resources, safety plan and appointment information (ReachZ).

  2. A companion app for the care provider to work collaboratively with the person at risk in order to formulate a safety plan/follow-up appointments and share it with them using QR Codes (ReachZ Companion App).

ReachZ is a personal tool that enhances the continuity of care and follow-up for a person at risk for suicide. The app integrates vital resources, reminders and safety plan information to create a positive environment and help save a life; because we think, “Life is beautiful”.
