PTSD Hub is designed for users experiencing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and its symptoms. The app contains an ‘Information’ section, displaying introductions and brief summaries for PTSD symptoms, which include flashbacks and nightmares, anxiety, and emotional numbness. The app provides ‘Coping Strategies’ for the symptoms, which are shared by users, rather than clinical professionals. Users can submit and share their own coping strategies. The ‘Resource’ section links resources such as EFT, Inspirational Quotes, Suicide help, and Headspace. There is also a ‘Get Help’ section providing the user with emergency telephone services for help in different countries.
