As BlueIce is new for the University we are still collecting data about how students and staff experience the app, so to download BlueIce we ask that you answer a few questions before downloading and again six weeks later. Find out more and access the app here.
BlueIce is a smartphone app to help you manage your emotions and self-harm.
BlueIce is a free, evidence-based app that has been shown to help students manage their emotions, better understand ‘triggers’ that cause distress, learn coping strategies to replace self-harm, and build a toolbox of activities, images and music to help feel soothed in difficult moments.
- check and track your mood
- access a personalisable toolbox of mood lifting activities
- easily access contact numbers of professional services of people you trust.
You can be confident about the app and the support it provides because:
- it is inconspicuous and pin-protected
- all data is stored locally on your phone and not shared elsewhere so it is completely private
- you can personalise the app so it is more tailored to you
- it is evidence-based
- it is free to download
- it is available 24/7
- it was developed by mental health professionals in conjunction with young people who have lived experience of self-harm.
Who is it for?
Students (or staff) at the University of Bath who may be struggling with their mental wellbeing, including self-harm.
What other students have said:
- One of the key things is that it made me kind of stop and take note of things that actually do help and make me associate them with self-harm prevention rather than just them being activities that I like to do.
- It was helpful in preventing other non self-harm related negative feelings… and kind of regulating my mood for the rest of the day because I found that once I acknowledged it on the app and was aware of it, I kind of became less likely to, you know, snap at a family member, and stuff like that.
