Affectum Bands were designed to provide young adults with a safe tool to learn emotion regulation while reducing self-harm behaviors.  Some adolescents cut, burn, pull their hair out, or engage in other self-harm behaviors as a way of trying to regulate their emotions.  Too many times teens resort to hurting themselves due to poor coping skills, difficult environmental factors, or poor relationships with primary family members.  Typically, these teens are not attempting suicide but attempting to alleviate emotions or create them. 

Three Affectum Bands are included in each set and come with a FREE mobile app for the user to download on their cell phone, each set is $4.95 plus $1.95 for shipping and handling (If ordering outside the United States please contact us for shipping rates).  The app provides detailed instructions, coping skills, and information to teach users about their emotions and how to experience them in a more controlled and safe way.  While rubber bands have long been used by mental health professionals to replace harmful cutting, Affectum Bands go several steps further providing users with mental health information, coping skills, and how to create the Affectum Chart which acts as a venue for users to recognize stressors and provide counselors with specific information to address during sessions. 

Affectum Bands are a great tool to provide clients who self harm!  Mental health facilities who treat young teens, middle and high school counselors who work with at risk youth, individual and group mental health practices now have a safe, easy, mental health tool to assist their clients in-between appointments.
