What is TAO?

TAO provides the JMU community access to over 150 brief, effective, educational sessions covering over 50 common topics and skills related to mental health, wellness, and substance use issues. While TAO does not connect you to a live Clinician, it offers high quality evidence-based interactive modules, mindfulness exercises and practice tools all aimed at helping you achieve your mental health goals.

Through TAO JMU community members have 24/7 accessibility to empirically supported treatment interventions for many common mental health concerns (e.g. anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, communication skills, etc.). This resource can be accessed when it is convenient for you and completed at your own pace through a computer, smartphone, or tablet.
