CBT-i Coach is for people who are engaged in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia with a health provider, or who have experienced symptoms of insomnia and would like to improve their sleep habits. The app will guide you through the process of learning about sleep, developing positive sleep routines, and improving your sleep environment. It provides a structured program that teaches strategies proven to improve sleep and help alleviate symptoms of insomnia.
CBT-i Coach is intended to augment face-to-face care with a healthcare professional. It can be used on its own, but it is not intended to replace therapy for those who need it.
CBT-i Coach is based on the therapy manual, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia in Veterans, by Rachel Manber, Ph.D., Leah Friedman, Ph.D., Colleen Carney, Ph.D., Jack Edinger, Ph.D., Dana Epstein, Ph.D., Patricia Haynes, Ph.D., Wilfred Pigeon, Ph.D. and Allison Siebern, Ph.D. CBT-i has been shown to be efficacious for insomnia for both Veterans and civilians.
CBT-i Coach was a collaborative effort between VA’s National Center for PTSD, Stanford School of Medicine, and DoD’s National Center for Telehealth and Technology.

Ratings and Reviews
This app was recommended to me for sleep apnea. The app seems pretty straightforward on the surface, but the layout could be better.
One feature that I highly desire is being able to access/input data using any device. That feature seems to be missing. Since I use multiple devices the data stays with the device the data was input to the end result being a mish mash of data on multiple devices. A simple user name/password and account would solve(?) this issue and would allow data to be compiled and provider access.
I'm too new to using this app to give it an accurate assessment, but since I am made to, a neutral rating. I will update in the future.
I’m not able to change prescribed sleep and wake times, which I’m supposed to adjust weekly in the app.
I wish the app gave me a recommendation vs me having to self assess.
On a positive - I’ve stopped using my phone in bed and wake up at the same time every day now.
Great app for vets/first responders
This is a great sleep app for veterans or first responders. The sleep tracking section is very helpful. Also the suggestions are not annoying like with some sleep apps. Some of the sleep prescription stuff could be hard to understand if you are using it on your own without a therapist. The notifications are buggy but there’s a way around that which is every time you get a notification if you click on it (like to open the app) then it will work correctly.
