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.

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.

Headspace

Headspace offers science-backed meditation exercises and mindfulness resources. In partnership with Governor Cuomo, Headspace now has a special NY collection of meditation, sleep, and movement exercises to support you through stressful and challenging times.
