VA Mobile Apps: COVID Coach

COVID Coach is a free, easy-to-use mobile application created for everyone, including Veterans and Servicemembers, to support self-care and overall mental health during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The app was developed by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in 2020. The app connects you to resources to help you cope with stress, stay healthy, stay connected, and navigate parenting, caregiving, and working at home while social distancing or sheltering in place. COVID Coach is not meant to replace processional care related to COVID-19 or mental health conditions, such as PTSD.

Features include:

  • Education about coping during the pandemic
  • Tools for self-care and to improve emotional well-being
  • Trackers to check your mood and measure your growth toward personal goals
  • Graphs to visualize progress over time

COVID Coach can be used as a stand-alone education and self-care tool, or as a supplement to professional mental health care. You can mark your favorite coping tools and track your mental health over time. Set reminders to visit the app each day and work toward your goals. The app can also help you create your own personal support network.
