distrACT App

The award-winning distrACT app provides trusted information and links to support people who self-harm and may feel suicidal.

The distrACT app has won the British Medical Association ‘Patient Information Award 2019’ for well-being.

The app offers total privacy and can be used offline to:

  • find out about self-harm and suicidal thoughts
  • discover self-help techniques and safer alternatives to self-harms
  • explore the ‘chill zone’ with links to resources that can make you feel better, such as films, books and online videos
  • access details about available services and support – all in one place
  • know what to do in a crisis or emergency

Users can feel safe and secure because no sign-up is required, and the app does not collect any personal data.
