STAIR Coach is designed to help you manage trauma symptoms and help improve your emotional wellbeing and relationships. STAIR Coach includes tools for self-care, a mood journal, and a training plan to help you understand and regulate your emotions and improve your relationships with others. You can set goals and reminders, take assessments, and track your progress in improving your symptoms over time. The app also includes quick links to help you find support. STAIR Coach can be used independently or while participating in Skills Training in Affective & Interpersonal Regulation (STAIR) psychotherapy.

STAIR Coach was created by VA’s National Center for PTSD.
