What is TAO self-help?

Therapy Assistance Online (TAO) is an interactive and easy-to-access online program designed to address issues related to anxiety, depression, and other concerns commonly faced by university students. TAO provides resources and tools to promote healthy coping skills and help you bounce back from life’s disappointments and frustrations. As a TAO participant, you have access to highly effective therapy modules, which include short videos and skill-building exercises. TAO is tailored to fit your schedule and your needs. The exercises can be completed through a smartphone, tablet, or computer and are accessible 24/7. TAO self-help is free, anonymous, and self-directed. It does not require counselor approval.
