Beyond Survival aims to reduce overdose deaths by using innovative technology to facilitate connection and peer support among people who use drugs. Beyond Survival will develop a Baltimore pilot to test the harm reduction app Be Safe by Brave for remote peer-to-peer supervision. The Be Safe app will reduce overdose deaths by virtually and anonymously connecting people with a supportive peer in the moment when they are alone and most at risk of overdose. Be Safe will be a non judgmental life-line to connection and support that is available anytime, anywhere. Beyond Survival is led by Lizzy Unger, a student at the UMBaltimore program for Health and Social Innovation, in collaboration with the Vancouver-based organization Brave.
