Heroes of Health Tech – Dr. Nihara Krause, Founder & CEO, Calm Harm

31 May 2018

Calm Harm is a smartphone app developed by Dr Krause, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, which helps children and young people manage their urge to self-harm. It provides tasks that help resist or manage that urge. Users can add their own tasks and it’s completely private and password protected. The four categories of tasks target the main reasons why people self-harm: Distract helps combat the urge by learning self-control; Control helps to care rather than harm; Express helps to get feelings out in a different way; Release provides safe alternatives to self-injury.
