AbilitiCBT -Morneau Shepell (free during COVID-19)

150 150 ScopeHub - UHN

AbilitiCBT is an internet-based cognitive behavioral therapy (iCBT) program that you can access from any device, any time. Cognitive behavioral therapy is one of the most effective forms of therapy. It works by helping you understand and change the thoughts, feelings and behaviors that are causing you problems. AbilitiCBT works the same way, but virtually. AbilitiCBT’s user-friendly platform makes it convenient to get help when you need it, where you need it.

Our AbilitiCBT offering includes a special program to help you address anxiety symptoms related to the uniquely challenging aspects of pandemics: uncertainty, isolation, caring for family and community members, information overload and stress management.
