With the advances made in cell phones and “smart phones” I am sure you are aware of “Apps”
Apps are very cool, with something for everyone.
I have apps on my Blackberry from keeping up with the game the Boston Red Sox are playing, to an App to read QR codes, and everything in between.
So why do I mention apps today, here’s why.
Many of you know that one of my passion lies with helping people overcome sleep loss issues, and as a former Marine that includes veterans. Heck I even have a page dedicated to helping veterans get a better nights sleep at: http://thesleepsecretebook.com/blog/operation-lullabye
So when I came across this app that can help veterans with PTSD, I had to check it out.
If you have, or think you might have PTSD, this app is for you.
This app; called the “PTSD Coach” was developed and created by the VA’s National Center for PTSD and the DoD’s National Center for Telehealth and Technology.
Your family and friends can also educate themselves about PTSD from this app too.
With the PTSD Coach app you can learn how to manage symptoms associated with PTSD.
Some of the features of the app include:
* Reliable information on PTSD and treatments that work
* Tools for screening and tracking your symptoms
* Convenient, easy-to-use skills to help you handle stress symptoms
* Direct links to support and help
* Always with you when you need it

PS…Remember: PTSD is a serious mental health condition that often requires professional evaluation and treatment. PTSD Coach is not intended to replace needed professional care. The questionnaire used in PTSD Coach, the PTSD Checklist (PCL), is a reliable and valid self-report measure used across VA, DoD, and in the community, but it is not intended to replace professional evaluation.
