I knew it was coming. VA now has an app for that. It recently announced an app for PTSD. The government application for smart phones is called “PTSD Coach” and users can track their PTSD symptoms, links them with local sources of support, provides accurate information about PTSD, and teaches helpful individualized strategies for managing PTSD symptoms at any moment.
The free PTSD Coach app is now available for download from the iTunes store and will be available for Android devices by the end of the spring. I have written before on how VA is moving into social media and the importance of adopting technology to properly serve our veterans. Here is another tool and VA should be applauded for this new concept.
