PTSD Hub

PTSD Hub is an app that is available for download on both Android and Apple devices. But why have I developed it?

I was diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in 2011 after a traumatic event in 2009. I had never heard of it and had no idea what the symptoms were or how to deal with how I was feeling. I live in the U.K. and due to a lot of cuts in the mental health field, I was left a long time before being offered therapy. During this time, I was alone in dealing with the different elements of PTSD and didn’t know anyone else with the same diagnosis. I don’t want anyone else to feel this way, and so, after many years of treatment, I decided to develop this app so that I could share not only my ways of coping, but also strategies from other people. Hopefully, regardless of the cause of your PTSD, you will find these helpful.

The app has 4 main tabs along the bottom:

Information

This page is split in to sections about PTSD symptoms. Each one is clickable and takes you to a page with more information. This is also where you will find strategies suggested by mental health services.

Coping Strategies

The main feature of PTSD Hub is to allow people who have PTSD or any of its symptoms to submit their coping strategies so that others can view them. The coping strategies section of the app is updated frequently so keep checking to see new ones (closing and re-opening the app).

If you would like to submit your strategy for inclusion, then please use the app by clicking on the ‘submit coping strategies’ button at the bottom of each symptom page. Alternatively, send it, along with which symptom it is for, via either Twitter or Facebook.

Resources

Throughout the information sections, different websites or ideas are mentioned. This section gives a link to these and they open within the app so you can easily access all other areas.

Get Help

If you need urgent help, it is advisable to call the correct emergency number in your country. Alternatively, helplines numbers are listed on this page. The number is click to call, so just press it and it will ask if you would like to call. This page was inspired by suicide.org so a big thanks to them.
