TAO is an e-mental health resource that can be accessed at https://thepath-ca.taoconnect.org (go to My pathways). Register with your smu.ca email address for free access!

TAO can be used as a self-guided tool, consisting of educational and interactive modules, practice tools, journals and progress measures. The self-help option allows you to move through the courses at your own pace, when you’re feeling down and need encouragement, or visiting the mindfulness library when you need a moment to meditate.

If you are a client of The Counselling Centre, the Counsellors will often set up a TAO account for you and help with selecting tools and modules which are best suited to your needs.
