Christmas is not necessarily a time of joy for everyone. If you are living with self-harm, or know someone who does, you may want to explore the ‘Self-Heal’ app. The free app features distraction task suggestions, useful contacts, information on self-harm and a gallery of inspirational images to help with the management of self-harm. It has been developed by a team of students at the University of Oxford in collaboration with mental health professionals. You can find it via the ‘Self-Heal app’ page The Self-Heal Facebook page contains further information, sample illustrations and more:


The ‘Manage Your Self Harm’ project was funded by IT Innovation Challenges in the 2015 student round.
