What is TAO Connect? TAO is an interactive, web-based program that provides guided activities to help overcome anxiety, depression and other common concerns. TAO is based on well-researched and highly effective strategies for helping anxiety, depression and other common concerns. Each week, you will watch engaging videos and complete self-guided exercises. Weekly exercises take approximately 30-40 minutes to complete. Daily homework can be completed on a smart phone, tablet, or computer. These take about 1-2 minutes per entry and the treatment is most effective if you make an entry 2 or more times per day.
