INSPIRE: Integrated Novel Solution for PTSD Intervention and Remote Engagement
Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a potentially debilitating condition that affects a significant number of veterans. The lifetime prevalence of PTSD in Veterans ranges from 10-30%. Anger and psychological stress are common symptoms associated with PTSD as well as depression and substance use disorder. Many of these Veterans return home without the means to manage and cope with their anger and/or stress, and do not maintain contact with their physician/clinician. There is a clear need for evidence-based treatment strategies for anger and stress management as well as remote monitoring capabilities and intervention strategies. Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI), along with our collaborators, proposes an Integrated Novel Solution for PTSD Intervention and Remote Engagement (INSPIRE). We will utilize a two-fold approach by (1) teaching wounded warriors a home-based technique to manage anger and stress and (2) using a smart phone application for remote monitoring and engagement. We expect that INSPIRE will significantly reduce stress, anxiety, and depression in wounded warriors suffering from PTSD and provide clinicians with a powerful tool for stress monitoring and alerts.
