How it Works
Whether you're currently working with a therapist or seeking help on your own, TAO Connect develops a personalized course based on your specific mental health needs.
If you're already working with a therapist, TAO Connect can help supplement your therapy sessions with self-help resources outside of business hours. We utilize a method called low intensity-high engagement therapy, combining online and mobile educational modules and practice tools with short phone conversations or video conferences with a therapist. More than 100 studies in 20 countries have shown this method to be as effective as hour-long, in-person individual therapy for common disorders.
TAO Connect can also be used as a purely self-guided tool, consisting of educational and interactive modules, practice tools, journals and progress measures. Our self-help option allows you to move through the courses at your own pace, when you're feeling down and need encouragement, or visiting our mindfulness library when you need a moment to meditate.
