The military has released a new mobile app designed for post-traumatic stress disorder patients in a therapy known as prolonged exposure.
PE Coach was developed by the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs and offers users a mobile way of assessing symptoms, recording therapy sessions, receiving reminders for homework and appointments and learning more about PTSD.
The app is available on Apple and Android devices, but is advised for use only when a patient is receiving professional prolonged exposure therapy.
