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.

Convenient help at my fingertips!!

I am so happy I found this app! I’ve been dealing with ptsd-c for years and the older I get the more I am triggered. This app has so many helpful layers to it. I can even schedule symptoms checkers frequently if I want. Keeps me more aware and proactive with my mental health! I totally recommend downloading this app!

It's good so far. Just wish you could do the self assessment daily as i think weekly is to long. Symptoms can vary from day to day and would be helpful to track
