Calm Harm provides tasks to help you resist or manage the urge to self-harm. If you want to you can set a password so that it's completely private. You can also personalise 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.
You can do the activities for either blocks of five minutes or fifteen minutes with a countdown for each minute. You will be able to track your progress and notice change*.
Calm Harm has been developed for teenage mental health charity stem4 by Dr Krause, Consultant Clinical Psychologist using the basic principles of an evidence based treatment called Dialectic Behaviour Therapy (DBT).
Note that if you forget both your password and memorable word, these cannot be reset as we do not create user accounts, and you will need to re-install the app, losing any previous data.
*Please note the app is an aid in treatment but does not replace it.

Great for anxiety too!
I don’t self harm, but this app helps me manage my health anxiety. I tried the Clear Fear app, but CBT strategies don’t work for me. This app is much better! It makes me do other things than google my symptoms.
I’ve been struggling to stay clean because I get really strong urges and it’s really hard to not cut but this app is so helpful and I’ve managed to stay clean for a month after a long period of cutting almost every day
Very good for anxiety attacks as well!
I don’t self harm due to my extreme fear of death but this app helps me manage my anxiety attacks regarding death etc, it’s super helpful and always makes me forget about my anxiety!
