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.

Fantastic app

A truly great app for PTSD although the exercises could be used for other anxiety disorders as well. This app has really helped me and the tools on it such as symptom tracking, having a safe song (really helps with flashbacks) and special photos to have to hand when the going gets tough helps to keep things a bit more positive. Recently updated also and pleasantly surprised with a new “feelings” exercise which helps with identifying emotions- good when overwhelmed. Big thank you to those who created this app. It has made a big difference.

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.

Immensely useful

Although I’m not a veteran, this app is fantastic for managing & tracking my PTSD patterns. Only fault I’ve found in the ~3 years I’ve used this is that the app doesn’t allow you to properly change the time of reminders for assessments, and occasionally it will continue to remind you even after turning off the feature in the app. Otherwise, an actual life-saver.
