Veterans with a VAC Disability Pension for PTSD should have been informed about this app. I found out through the grapevine, NOT VAC.

I am disappointed it is not available for android. It should be available on all provincial health pages for use by anyone. Thanks

This is a great app. It can apply to many people experiencing the constant fear and hyper-vigilance that is a hallmark of PTSD. Whatever the cause, any tools to help manage the symptoms are welcome.

This shouldn't just be military . Not that I am saying anything about military I have the absolute hugest respect two generations of men were veterans and my dad was in the navy . I feel there are other times ptsd can be current and they should be branched on. I feel when I look at the page it's more inviting for military. I feel as if my childhood abuse then sudden deaths at home may not be validated because I'm not military. Not that I'm whining I'm just thinking if I felt it how many other people did too and didn't voice thier opinon. Government is frightening for Someone with anxiety or other things they may experiance.
