Developed by Dr. Sherry Benton, a former director of counseling for a large university, Therapy Assistance Online (or TAO) was created for the purpose of decreasing the amount of time a student waited before they were able to receive help for a mental health related issue. TAO is an interactive platform that provides access to effective researched strategies to help manage anxiety, stress, depression, and other mental health issues. It offers two main sources of help for students: For low risk issues, students can access TAO’s self-help modules and related educational materials. The platform allows students to access professional help via online therapy sessions for high-risk issues. Additionally, the platform offers tools that can be used by administrators to track treatment efficacy and utilization. A mobile app is also available for both Apple and Android users.
