Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) App Helps Thousands

WASHINGTON (May 17, 2011) - The PTSD Coach smartphone application (app), launched in April by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Department of Defense (DoD), has already helped more than 5,000 users connect with important mental health information and resources.

"This new tool is about helping Veterans and Servicemembers when and where they need it," said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki.  "We are encouraged so many have already downloaded this resource and hope many more will utilize this convenient tool to access VA services."

Since its launch, the PTSD Coach app has been downloaded by thousands of individuals.  While 96 percent of the users so far are located in the United States, the app has also been downloaded in 25 other countries.
The app lets users track their PTSD symptoms, links them with public and personalized sources of support, provides accurate information about PTSD, and teaches helpful strategies for managing PTSD symptoms on the go.

Currently, the PTSD Coach app has received perfect customer review scores on the iTunes App Store.  Comments from Veterans and family members are overwhelmingly positive and one user describes the app as "a must for every spouse who has a family member with PTSD."  Professionals have sent positive reviews, suggestions and offers to collaborate on research evaluating the PTSD Coach app. 

The app has also already proven to be a useful tool for the staff at the Veterans Crisis Line.  Within the first two hours of the app's official launch, the Crisis Line staff were contacted by a distressed Veteran who reported being instructed by the app to call the crisis line and was subsequently given an appointment at the local VA medical center.
Crisis Line staff have begun to regularly recommend this resource to callers. 

The app is one of the first in a series of jointly-designed resources by the VA National Center for PTSD and DoD's National Center for Telehealth and Technology to help Servicemembers and Veterans manage their readjustment challenges and get anonymous assistance. Given the popularity of mobile devices, VA and DoD hope to reach tens of thousands of Veterans, Servicemembers, and their family members with the new suite of apps.

Information on the PTSD Coach app is on the VA's National Center for PTSD Website:
http://www.ptsd.va.gov/public/pages/PTSDCoach.asp. More apps from DoD's National Center for Telehealth and Technology <http://t2health.org/apps>  can be found at: http://www.t2health.org/apps.

Research indicates early intervention after a traumatic event can reduce the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). That’s why the more we know about PTSD, the more effective we can be as social workers to help people overcome and cope with this mental health condition.

June 27 is PTSD Awareness Day, which was established last year by the Senate to raise public awareness about PTSD.  Awareness first starts with understanding what something is, where it comes from and how it can be treated.

This “What is PTSD?” infographic outlines the symptoms, causes and treatments for the various types of traumatic events, and we hope this serves as a good starting point to spread awareness.

Government corruption, which is quite obvious in this (PTSD Discrimination) case, is the vilest form of governmental abuse of power. As a retired police officer, this case violates every tenet that I placed my life on the line for every day for in order to uphold our constitution. Shame on New Jersey. Your state's reputation precedes you, and this case confirms why.

UPDATE:   A couple of years ago, I was the Operations Officer for the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, on the waterfront between the USS ARIZONA and the USS BOWFIN. The Commandant of the Marine Corps was the featured speaker at the dedication of the USS ARIZONA Marine Remembrance, 10 November 2006. The National Park Service, which administers the USS ARIZONA Memorial is renovating all of Halawa Landing, the site of the Marine Remembrance. The Regional Director of the Natl Park Service Western Region, Jon Jarvis, stated on the local TV news that the Marine Remembrance would be removed. I challenged him on that statement and convinced him that would not happen without a fight. I passed the word to (disabled PTSD vet and webmaster) Jack Cunningham (Americans Working Together), who in turn asked his readership to email Jarvis that the entire USMC would make every effort to have him relieved of his duties if he moved that monument. I was copied on many of the emails to him from Marines, their friends and their families that it nearly fried my computer. And...it worked. In order to save his job, Jarvis backed down. The Remembrance now belongs to the USMC and has its' rightful place in direct view of the USS ARIZONA.

SECOND REQUEST:


Dear Senator Oroho,

I'm writing this request (again) on behalf of Jack Cunningham, a former active duty Marine and Vietnam veteran.  Although I've never actually met him in person, simply the fact that he is a fellow Marine in need of justice, I offer to help him in any way I can.  As you may know, Marines are like that.  Marines take care of Marines.

Although I probably don't know all of the facts pertaining to his case against the State of New Jersey, I know enough to firmly believe that he should be heard in a public forum.  His charges are serious.  There are claims of abuse of power and cover-up at the highest level of the State government.  When such accusations are made, I believe the leadership has no other option than to investigate.  Until that is done, all that know of him and his charges will assume that there is indeed a cover-up.  Perception is a powerful thing.  Hopefully it won't be counter to the truth, whatever that may be.

If this is allowed to continue to fester, the results will be devastating on all involved.

If this issue is not addressed soon, my only other option is to forward this to every Marine website and public forum I can find.  That option is not a good one for any of us.

Please do the right thing and give Jack his "day in court."

Very Respectfully,   John R. Bates

A real David vs. Goliath story.
 
Serving as a  PRO SE, Superior Court plaintiff,  a PTSD disabled veteran convinced Honorable Judge Ronald Graves that a high level Supreme Court Official and his law firm committed Legal Malpractice.   Over the objection of this high level Supreme Court official, Judge Graves determined that the disabled vet's charges and evidence "warrants the Law Division for damages."     When the disabled veteran asked the court for a transcript of Judge Graves' decision, he was notified by the court clerk that part of the court transcript was (strangely) missing and could not be reproduced."    Read some of the court filed letters by pressing here.   This missing court transcript helped this corrupt, high level Supreme Court official and his corrupt law firm to get away with Legal Malpractices charges and Attorney Ethics charges.    This state courts' COVER-UP is still going on.       PRESS  HERE  FOR  EVIDENCE 
IT'S  ALREADY  BEEN  SEVEN  YEARS  OF  BATTLE,  BUT  DAVID  IS  NOT  GIVING  UP,  UNTIL GOLIATH  AND  HIS  SUPPORTERS  COME  DOWN  TO  JUSTICE.

Back in December 2000, I tried to get the New Jersey Supreme Court to understand what PTSD was like.  In the end, these people I asked for help, used my PTSD against me.  If the New Jersey Supreme Court used it to mock me, it is understandable that the average American still might think of it as a sign of weakness...

I have a piece on Audie Murphy on my website. He is the basic reason PTSD was recognized by the government. He spent much of his own money pushing the government to research the issue of nightmares, flashbacks and the intrusive thoughts.

Many people may not know that he never drank alcohol nor smoked. He however was a compulsive gambler. This is believed by many, to be due to his reaction of his traumatic experiences in the war.
