PTSD support goes mobile

Marines and Marine veterans who may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder now have access to help that fits in their pocket. The Department of Defense and Veterans Affairs have created mobile ‘apps’ for smartphones and tablets to help warfighters who may be suffering. The most recent app available on Apple and Android platforms, PTSD Coach, can help users with PTSD manage the stress of daily life and does a self-assessment to determine if professional care is needed. Tools range from relaxation skills to anger management and other common self-help strategies. This doesn’t replace professional care Marines may need but can be a valuable tool to supplement counseling.
