PTSD Coach

By US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


PTSD Coach was designed for Veterans and military Servicemembers who have, or may have, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This app provides users with education about PTSD, information about professional care, a self-assessment for PTSD, opportunities to find support, and tools that can help users 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. Users can customize tools based on their preferences and can integrate their 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.

Good app, but last update needs work

The app already had issues. It's from the VA, so honestly this isn't the most surprising, but they really did do a good job. You can track history, add your own photos and music to help you calm down (the music is especially helpful), and you can even learn coping skills and strategies that psychologists highly recommend. They know what they're doing here. You can dislike options as well, and do several until you're okay enough to seek assistance or do something else. (The app even has phone numbers built in, and contacts you can add to help in case of emergency.)

But they said, I haven't been able to use this app since last year. The new update deleted some people's history, but for me, the app no longer opens. I've missed the app, and can definitely say that the app should not be relied on. Though, if I ever get to use it again, I hope I have access to my history.

Excellent tools and advice

Loved the collection of tools to help manage symptoms. Also very nice to be able to track how I'm doing over time. Have tried lots of apps out there- lots of goofball stuff that seems like quackery- but PTSD Coach is the real deal. Still has some quirks that VA needs to work out, but great app overall.

Needs support for app

I could find no way to contact app support from the app.
Lost my symptom history with last update, and now graph seems to be full(?). Cannot see newest entries.
Scrolling back through graph would be a most helpful addition to this app.
