Beyond MST

Average: 4.2 (22 votes)

Beyond MST was designed to help people heal from sexual assault or harassment during military service, also called military sexual trauma (MST). The app is a free, secure, and private self-help tool that survivors can use at their own pace in their recovery. It features over 30 specialized tools to help users build skills to cope with problems, manage symptoms, and improve their quality of life. Users can set self-care goals, track their recovery progress, and learn more about MST and common concerns that survivors experience. Users can also learn more about important sources of support for MST survivors and find inspiration to continue on their recovery journeys. This app can be used by people who are in mental health treatment and those who are not. No account or password is required, no identifiable data is collected, and there is an option to enable a PIN lock for extra privacy. You are not alone: the Beyond MST app can help.
