Event description

Description

The distrACT app provides easy, quick and discreet access to general health information and advice about self-harm. While the app is mainly aimed at young people, it will be useful to people of any age who consider, or already self-harm, their families and other people who provide support.

distrACT has been created by practising medical doctors together with young adults and experts in self-harm and suicide prevention. It is a wide collaboration between Expert Self Care Ltd, Bristol Health Partners, Self-Injury Support, Self-Injury Self Help, Bristol hospitals and universities, as well as other local and national organisations.

At the launch event we will be demonstrating distrACT and exploring the context of self-harm and suicide prevention both locally and nationally. We are inviting individuals and organisations with special interest in mental health to attend as we feel the event will also quite naturally provide networking opportunities and a forum for discussion.

The app is available at both the App Store and Google Play - there are links on the distrACT web page

Bristol Health Partners’ aim is to improve the health of all residents of Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset. We do this by bringing together the region’s policy-makers, its health services, researchers, innovators and teachers. We work through a number of health themes, including mental health.

Expert Self Care Ltd is a UK Social Enterprise certified by the NHS England Information Standard as a provider of reliable health information.

Event venue: Bristol Energy Hub, on the Harbourside, between the Watershed and ZaZa Bazaar:
