By Kristin Forbis, Jan 14, 2020
Utah State University Uintah Basin recently announced that USU has a new tool available to help with mental health. Students of USU have free access to ACT Guide, a free online mental health and wellness resource. The self-help program was designed by Michael Levin, an associate professor in the USU Psychology Department, along with members of the USU ACT Research Group to help with mild to moderate symptoms of depression, anxiety, and/or stress. The program is based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy which has “been shown to be helpful for a wide range of mental health issues in over 300 randomized clinical trials.” The 12 self-guided lessons help individuals learn new ways to develop emotional wellbeing and overcome challenges in their life. Students get free access for 6 months and the general public can have use of the program for $10.
