The TAO tools and platform were built to meet many students' skill development & educational needs in well-being and behavioral health. 


TAO can be used to provide self-help when students need support and education for common issues, and to provide professionally guided help when the student's problems require a higher level of care. The TAO platform includes a measure of resilience that allows administrators to track the utilization and effectiveness of the tools in various use cases on campus.
