Average: 3.7 (361 votes)

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 is available in English and Spanish. To switch the language, go to the Menu > Personalize, and then select the language using the picker at the bottom of the screen.

PTSD Coach Online

If you do not have a smartphone, but have a computer and internet access, try PTSD Coach Online. The online version of PTSD Coach is based on the app, although they do differ slightly. PTSD Coach Online includes additional tools and videos for understanding your goals and problem-solving.

PTSD Coach Online is most compatible with the internet browser, Google Chrome. If you experience issues when using another browser, try switching to Google Chrome.

PTSD Coach and PTSD Coach Online were created by VA’s National Center for PTSD and DoD’s National Center for Telehealth & Technology.
