Self-Help Resources

These resources may help you become more aware of your emotional health or may provide skills and tools to improve your emotional health.  

TAO Self-Help

TAO Self-Help is a customizable, self-guided program that includes interactive educational modules and practice tools to help you understand and manage how you feel, think and act. You can learn stress management, mindfulness skills, problem-solving, relationship skills, and strategies for bouncing back from life’s disappointments and frustrations. TAO Self-Help is completely self-directed, with no contact with a mental health professional.

Materials in TAO Self-Help can help with stress, anxiety, relationship problems, anger management, problem solving, communications and evaluating your alcohol and drug use through:

  • Self-help tools
  • Mindfulness library and exercises
  • Self-help videos
  • Educational modules
  • Logs to track moods and progress

Access is available to all current UB students, faculty and staff.

Accessing TAO is easy from desktop or mobile, once you create your account:

  • Use your UB @buffalo.edu email address to create your account

On-Line Screenings

Mental health screenings are a quick way to determine if you or someone you care about may need to reach out to a doctor or mental health professional for an evaluation. These types of screenings are typically designed to be educational, not diagnostic.
