In every life, there are both good times and times when we struggle. Sometimes the struggles are manageable, and sometimes it can feel as if we are drowning.
When you need help getting through the hard times, one tool you can use to help you is TAO — Therapy Assistance Online.
Free and Confidential Online Self-Help
Students, faculty and staff have free access to completely private online self-help for stress, anxiety, and depression that fits around your busy life – anytime, anywhere.

The interactive sessions, mindfulness exercises, and practice tools all aimed at helping you achieve your goals.
TAO also offers the ability for UA Little Rock counselors to meet with students virtually through its HIPPA compliant video conferencing feature.
