About this app

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.

Amazing app, no add-on costs. You can track your overall mental health and PTSD symptoms over time. Great for those with depression and anxiety too. You can connect to Vets if you want. There is no pressure. I get in my head and this helps me crawl out. A lot of different therapies, like sound, music, guided meditation, sayings, pictures, customizable pics, and this helps.

During a recent crisis I used grounding and thought shifting through the app, it made me feel like the people who put the app together "get it" in a way that most people don't. When stress is high it's hard to remember what tools I have and where to find them, the app uses the same strategies I'm learning in therapy and it feels seamless to use it when I need it. Explore the app before you need it, there are a lot of options and it's easier to find what works for you when you're calm and safe.

Great idea but could use improvements: 1. PTSD also Affects people Outside the Military. 2. The audio of the sounds is too compressed. Use uncompressed or higher bitrate audio 3. It's important not to tell someone with PTSD what to do or criticize something that happens. ( I.e. "Don't fall asleep during this exercise") 4. Some of the tools insult the intelligence of the user since they are ultra simplistic. I don't have room for any other feedback but I would love to participate in App Feedback
