Calm Harm is an app designed to help people resist or manage the urge to self-harm. It's private and password protected.
Who is it suitable for?
Calm Harm is designed for people who are trying to manage urges to self-harm.
How does it work?
Calm Harm is based on the principles of dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT). DBT is a type of talking therapy that's often effective in people with mood disorders.
The app provides tasks that encourage users to distract themselves from urges to self-harm and help manage their "emotional mind" in a more positive way.
Please note that the app is an aid to treatment, but doesn't replace it.
How do I access it?
The app is free to download from the App Store and Google Play.
