TAO Connect Reaches Out to University Leaders with Solution to Common Challenge

Digital and online tools are at the forefront to increase access to mental health counseling on campus – and research has proven that digital solutions can be used to overcome barriers to treatment access. This kind of low-intensity, cognitive behavioral treatment (LI CBT) combines on-line educational materials and provides support via brief (5 to 30 minute) video conference or phone contact with a provider. Low intensity treatment can be delivered at a distance and provides students with practice tools and materials that can be used anytime and anywhere.  The model has been researched extensively in Europe, Australia, and other countries, with over 100 published studies verifying its effectiveness.
