We wanted to tell you about stem4's Calm Harm app, it's free to download from the App Store and on Google Play.

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 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?
The app is 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 for treatment but does not replace it.

Who are stem4?
stem4 is a charity whose mission is to foster the development of good mental health in teenagers through enhancing early understanding and awareness, promoting shared early detection and signposting towards prompt action and intervention.

Collaborative work with young people, their families, and schools will help an individual to enhance their resilience and sense of individual responsibility. We provide a commitment and hope to combat mental illness and follow through on a mentally healthy path to adulthood.

Our website www.stem4.org.uk also provides comprehensive and accurate information on mental health issues.
