App to alert family and friends of your wellbeing

Community Member


Does anyone know of an app or other resource that a person who is feeling depressed or suicidal can complete about their mood, that can then immediately alert (with their consent) their family and/or friends about how they are feeling? Do others think this would be helpful?
