A Safe Space is a place or environment in which a person can feel confident that they will not be criticized, rejected or abandoned. In this space, a person is comfortable exploring the brightest and darkest parts of their life. Safe Spaces are important because it allows a person to search their authentic selves, identifying their true needs and desires.
