WHOLE

In the language of AIM, being WHOLE includes finding a positive sense of wellbeing, being in a safe place [both physically and emotionally], feeling peaceful and letting go of hurt.

Often this isn't an easy journey, but through different types of support and help, finding the the steps towards being WHOLE is possible.

But this isn't some distant idea, there are many things that can be put in place today to increase your sense of positive wellbeing. On this page we have a few resources for you to explore as well as great contact points if you're having a tough time right now.

"What's really amazing is when we are at our lowest points, feeling defeated and broken, we are able to mend and feel whole again"

                        Calm is a mindfulness app for both                                       newcomers and meditation enthusiasts alike. It can help users find inner peace and navigate life’s stressors.

It’s common to feel overwhelmed and anxious. For some, these feelings might be completely unfamiliar, while others might be looking for new ways to cope with or manage existing emotions or conditions. Whatever your level of anxiety or unrest, it can be helpful to try your hand at meditation to keep your mental health in check.

                                 The urge to self-harm is like a wave.

                                 It feels the most powerful  when you                                         start wanting to do it.
Learn to ride the wave with the free Calm Harm app by choosing activities from these categories:

Comfort, Distract, Express Yourself, Release, and Random.

There is also a breathing exercise to help you be mindful and stay in the moment, regulate difficult emotions, and reduce tension. When you ride the wave, the urge to self-harm will fade.
