The myPlan App

myPlan was created to help people determine if a friend or family member is in an unsafe intimate relationship, and if so how to support them. Created in conjunction with researchers at Johns Hopkins University, it was created using 20 years of research with female-identifed survivors of relationship abuse.

 Step 1: Download the app

Step 2: Help yourself or a friend

The myPlan app is designed to help women and their friends to determine if a relationship is unsafe. It is completely anonymous and private, protected by a pin. Consider uninstalling the app after you have finished.

Step 3: Learn about relationship abuse

The myPlan app has a series of resources—from myths about relationship abuse to healthy relationship behaviors to red flags and more—that you can use to educate yourself about a potentially abusive relationship.

Step 4: Assessment Tool

The Assessment Tool enables a user to answer a series of questions resulting in a score representing the danger from variable to extreme. While abuse of any kind is unacceptable, seeing a high score can be a wake-up call for a dangerous situation.

Step 5: My Plan

The Planning Tool helps create an action plan by assessing and weighing the user’s preferences and situation. Users compare factors of commitment to relationship, privacy, social life, safety, and studies to better understand their priorities and decide on an action plan from the suggested strategies. If you are in immediate danger, please call 911.

Educate yourself about the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationship behaviors.
