● Last updated June 2018
● Calm Harm provides tasks to help you resist or manage the urge to self-harm.  Get started by setting your password so that it's completely private. You can personalize it if you wish, by choosing the background colour theme and deciding on whether you would like some company using a variety of friendly characters. The app then provides you with four categories of tasks to help you surf the urge. ‘Distract' helps in learning self-control; ‘Comfort' helps you care rather than harm; 'Express yourself' gets those feelings out in a different way and ‘Release' provides safe alternatives to self-injury.  There is also a ‘Breathe' category to help calm and get back in control.  Calm Harm has been developed for stem4 by Dr Krause, Consultant Clinical Psychologist using the basic principles of Dialectic Behaviour Therapy (DBT). (*Please note the app is an aid in treatment but does not replace it.)
