Apps

(These are all free btw)

-Huddle

Available for: IOS

Talk through it together.

Huddle is an app for IOS users, it makes it super easy to talk about things you’re passionate about/struggling with, with people who have the same interests or have been in similar situations. They’re tons of groups for you to join about everything from body image to self harm to gaming. Share your thoughts, share your feelings, give advice, get advice but most importantly know that you’re not alone.

Unfortunately Huddle isn’t available for android users just yet but you can join the waiting list and be notified as soon as it is

-Bacon-The Game

Available for: IOS; Android

The rules are simple. Put bacon on everything. I personally use this app as a distraction and it works really well. Within minutes I’ve gone to stressed out to intensely focused on making sure my streak of bacon lands on Mona Lisa.

-Pacifica

Available for: Android; IOS

Do you ever feel like you don’t know how to just ‘be’ anymore? I remember when I had my first major depressive episodes, I eventually came out of it and I didn’t know how to go through a day and feel normal. I lacked interest in EVERYTHING, getting out of bed was one of the hardest things I had to do and I was barely eating because I had zero appetite.I use this app every day (at least I try to) to track my mood, journal if I don’t feel like writing and handle depressive episodes. The app offers a goals section

Calm Harm

Available for: IOS; Android;Online

The urge to self-harm is like a wave. Calm Harm is an app that helps you manage the urge to self harm using activities that fall into groups: Comfort, Distract, Express Yourself, Release, Random and Breathe. I’ve been using Calm Harm for the longest time, and it’s one of the most helpful apps I’ve ever come across. It’s available for IOS and Android users and FREE

-MY TUMBLR

2019-03-02

So I recently started a Tumblr page because I needed a new creative outlet and there’s something really relaxing about spending hours on Pinterest looking for images to perfect the aesthetic I have going on on my Tumblr page. And I’ve gotta say, there’s something really therapeutic about looking at photos of cake😂🙈

    • It depends on what you’re struggling with but in terms of apps, I use Pacifica the most but Calm Harm is major for me when I get triggered. Other than that music and running my hands under cold water. Hope that helps lovely💕
