Beyond MST is a free, secure self-help mobile app that was created specifically to support the health and well-being of survivors of sexual assault or harassment during military service, also called military sexual trauma (MST). The app has over 30 specialized tools and other features to help MST survivors cope with challenges, manage symptoms, improve their quality of life and find hope. Users can also take brief assessments in the app to track their well-being, symptoms and beliefs about the world, and progress towards personal goals. You do not need to be in treatment to use the app, and it may be helpful to survivors of other types of unwanted sexual experiences, too. The app keeps your information private; no account is needed, and any personal information entered in the app is not shared with anyone, including the VA. There is also an option to enable a PIN lock for extra privacy. You are not alone: the Beyond MST app can help.
