About Calma

How does it work?

Calma consists of two modes, providing the user with effective tools both during and out of crises. Strategies are based on dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), whose efficacy in crisis reduction has been proved.

Out of crisis mode

Out of crisis, Calma's main objective is reducing vulnerability to lower the propensity to generate new emotional crises.

We achieve this through the use of strategies such as the storage of photos, audios, videos and phrases, which help to generate well-being and work as an anchor to life. In other words, these are things that make us feel good when we see them.

Another strategy used by Calma is the possibility to allow yourself to plan pleasant activities for the week, helping you remember all the positive things to come.

I need help mode

In every screen, Calma has a button at the bottom of the screen that reads "I need help." This button gives you access to skills to manage the moment of the crisis.

By activating the button, the user accesses a series of interventions based on the DBT model whose efficacy in reducing suicide crises has been proved in treatment with therapists. The skills are shown as cards and are adjusted to the evolution of the crisis, helping you overcome it in the best way.

Calma is also with you during problem solving, providing you with a framework to help you solve the problem that may trigger a crisis.
