PTSD Coach was designed for those who have, or may have, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This app provides you with education about PTSD, information about professional care, a self-assessment for PTSD, opportunities to find support, and tools that can help you manage the stresses of daily life with PTSD. Tools range from relaxation skills and positive self-talk to anger management and other common self-help strategies.

Use as an aid to surviving if you have PTSD
I didn't realise the app hadn't been reviewed by anyone suffering from PTSD. I have used this app since October 2011. It's been a life saver as still awaiting NHS treatment for my ilness. If you suffer from PTSD, for whatever reason, give this a try - you might not like every tip, but the ones you like will help you survive the symptoms. I have taken a star off because the Track Symptom History has not saved all my progress, so I can only show my GP the last 4months, instead of 9, which isn't as helpful. Be patient and try the app in the moments when you are losing it. I am thankful to have it, and it was free!
This is just what I'd want!
Can't think why this has not been reviewed. I work in neuropsychology and PTSD and I have recommended to everyone I know, pulled it out in therapy too. It's visually pleasing, evidence based and you can even listen to the information sections. For clients with access to the app I would recommend without reservation. Good assessment too.
