Anger and Stress are common symptoms that interfere with daily functioning for returning service members, more specifically ones that are suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Current mitigation efforts to help cope and treat these symptoms often rely on face-to-face treatment with a mental health treatment provider. Current stand-alone COTS treatment products for PTSD fall short of comprehensively tracking treatment progress, capturing in depth physiological data, interpreting/analyzing patient specific physiological and contextual data, and providing treatment providers with in-depth reports and analysis. The Mobile Stress and Anger management Tool (M-SAT) integrates unobtrusive physiological sensors, such as Heart Rate and GSR, with a software suite applied on a mobile device (Smartphone) that tracks patient specific PTSD symptoms, analyzes and interprets data, provides biofeedback and evidence-based treatment techniques in real-time, stores information on a secure server, and provides treatment providers with access to useful mental health reports in between sessions. M-SAT will bring the patient and therapist together with a new level of comprehensive analysis of stress and anger, providing the patient real-time analysis and techniques for identifying and mitigating times of anger/stress while providing the therapist with previously unavailable accounts of the patient"s experiences outside of therapy sessions.
