Calm Harm is designed to help you resist or manage the urge to self-harm. It’s based on an evidence-based therapy called Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT). When you first log in, you have the chance to set up a password to help keep it private.
We love it because Calm Harm offers a bunch of different suggestions that might help based on whatever you need. For example, there’s things to try if you need comfort, a distraction, a release, or just to express yourself. It’s also class because each activity gives you a timer to make sure you’re giving it a real go, and then time to reflect on how you feel at the end. You can then track your progress over weeks and months, looking for patterns in terms of triggers, but also what helps you.
