MYSH stands for ‘manage your self-harm’. This student-led project is designing an App to help any member of the University, in an accessible, informal format.
The App aims to be “a tool for people who self-harm to resist or manage their urges. It will provide suggestions of evidence-based DBT (dialectical behaviour therapy) tasks for the user to try. These ‘distractions’ will help users to express their emotions differently, offer better coping strategies to stress, or change their mood.”
Anyone interested in knowing more or helping with the content of the App; who may have ideas on tasks, inspirational images or quotes, should get in touch with Hadassah Buechner – Hadassah.firstname.lastname@example.org
