What is TAO?

Therapy Assisted Online (TAO Self-Help) are tools and a platform built to meet student educational and skill development needs in the areas of well-being and behavioral health.  TAO Self-Help can be used when students need support and education for common issues, and to provide professionally guided help when the student’s problems require a higher level of care. TAO Self-Help can help increase access to resources, improve quality of life and well-being, help students overcome challenges, remove barriers impacting students’ lives, and reduce costs since this resource is FREE to UCI registered students!

Note to Campus Partners: The TAO program can also be tailored to provide resources to support the work that you do with UCI students and the campus community.
