Reviews

Reviewer: Real Warriers Campaign, organised by the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE). The organisation collaborates with a civilian agencies and advocacy groups.
Review: “Knowing the facts about PTSD can make a real difference in the lives of those who need support.

PTSD Coach provides service members, veterans, their friends and families with dependable resources they can trust. Many service members who experience PTSD symptoms can benefit from care and support, but some fear that they may be considered weak or that leaders or unit members might lose confidence in their abilities if they seek care. The information available through the PTSD Coach app can help service members and their loved ones overcome those concerns and obtain accurate information about PTSD and find the support they need.”
