This relapse prevention plan template should be filled out by a patient with their Behavioral Health Care Manager in the months prior to completing an episode of Collaborative Care. The purpose of a relapse prevention plan (RPP) is to remind a patient to continue doing the things that make them feel better, assess their own symptoms and warning signs, and know when to ask for more help if it is needed. In other words, a RPP is a self-management tool for patients. We also have a Relapse Prevention Plan Template available in English.

Depression can occur multiple times during a person’s lifetime. The purpose of a relapse prevention plan is to help the patient understand their own personal warning signs. These warning signs are specific to each person and can help the patient identify when depression may be starting to return so they can get help sooner – before the symptoms get bad. The other purpose of a relapse prevention plan is to help remind the patient what has worked for him/her to feel better. The relapse prevention plan should be filled out by the Behavioral Health Care Manager and the patient together.
