If you have upsetting memories or thoughts or feelings of anxiety that often make you feel like something traumatic is happening – you may benefit from Veterans Affairs STAIR Coach app.
STAIR stands for Skills Training in Affective and Interpersonal Regulation.

- Suggested activities and reminders to take time for body and mind
- Readings that help you understand the impact of trauma
- Questions that identify what you should work on to move forward
- A mood journal to record how you’re feeling and track patterns or changes
