Word needs to get out about the beautifully put together PTSD support app for iPhone and Android. Where the rise of twitter allowed some of us to blossom into new ways of communication and connecting, so is this app creating community for a niche group of users who may feel lost in the giant world of twitter. How easy is it to connect to a particular group of people by logging on to twitter or facebook? How overwhelming can that be?! Especially when we are talking about the sense of ptsd survivors,... small is good. Community is important. Valuable and accessible information is essential. I relate it to the days when twitter was a small community, mostly exclusive to early adapters. Connecting was simpler, communicating was much more fun, and information was easier to access. The sea was smaller and easier to swim in so to speak.
Some of the resources this app provides include chat, people nearby feature, news, podcasts, videos, links, fan walls, and mailing lists. It is focused on providing support to military veterans and their families that are struggling with the effects of post traumatic stress disorder,.. "The resources are intended to not only support veterans and other soldiers, but also their wives, husbands, children, parents, and other family members that have been affected by PTSD in some way."
I cannot express to you what a spectacular breakthrough this tool is and how excited I am to see it, and it's users especially, grow and flourish by connecting to others. WOW. Praise for Kurt and The Hope for One PTSD App.
