This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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. You can customize tools based on your preferences and can integrate your own contacts, photos, and music. This app can be used by people who are in treatment as well as those who are not.
PTSD Coach was created by VA’s National Center for PTSD and DoD’s National Center for Telehealth & Technology.
What's New in Version 3.0
Improved and expanded tools for managing symptoms
Expanded educational topics
User interface and graphics enhancements
Helpful, needs one important fix
I have found this app to be very useful in managing my day. The breathing and mindfulness exercises have a great pace that help me recenter.
One rather significant thing that prevents me from getting any benefit from some of the exercises is hearing the side-work the narrator is doing in the background. I hear her clicking on things or typing, and all I can think is that she is so over worked that she has to multitask while she is making these recordings, and it stresses me out. I want to use more of these tools, but once I hear those sounds in the background that exercise is useless for me.
Please update the app with the same exercises, and let the narrator just record the exercise without the distraction. Thanks.
Last update deleted my history
Good app but the latest update deleted all my history. Not cool. Why take a monthly assesment if its not going to track my ups/downs? Figure it out or I can't recommend anymore. ***Update - the VA developed the app. No wonder its jacked. Cheers to the VA for being incompetent in every aspect of vet support.
***Edit*** Another update and history was deleted again. Haha
