My Shiny Thing

By Michael Colson

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


My Shiny Thing acts as a distraction intervention, consistent with the evidence based research theory of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. My Shiny Thing empowers those who self-injure with an individualized coping tool to help manage the urge to self harm.
