Calm Harm by stem4
Why try it?
Calm Harm provides tasks that help you resist or manage the urge to self harm. You can add your own tasks too and it’s completely private and password protected.
What does it do?
The four categories of tasks target the main reasons for why people self harm. Distract helps to combat the urge by learning self control; Comfort helps to care rather than harm; Express gets those feelings out in a different way and Release provides safe alternatives to self injury.
Will it work?
Calm Harm is an award-winning app developed for stem4 by Dr Krause, Consultant Clinical Psychologist using ideas from an evidence based therapy called DBT. The focus is to help learn to identify and manage your ‘emotional mind’ with positive impact. The app enables you to track your progress. Please note that the app is an aid in treatment but does not replace it.

Ratings and Reviews
I’m so happy!!
I am so grateful that such an amazing app was created by such thoughtful people. It is the sweetest, nicest and most incredible idea and app I’ve ever downloaded. I think it works well and it honestly warms me up inside to know that apps like this exist. I am definitely going to raise awareness of this app, especially towards friends I know who are struggling with mental illness and more specifically, self harm. Thank you for creating this app. 💓
This app really does help! It'll take time finding what works best but, if you're receptive to it, this works like a charm 💚 To anyone considering this app it helps with any type of self harm (from overdosing to burning or cutting) as well as anxiety and more!
Really good app! It would be even better if it had support information for Australia and other areas around the world but otherwise really good.
