Free Resources for Wellbeing
The Online Therapy Unit (OTU), located at the University of Regina, has been involved in research, education, and service delivery for people experiencing anxiety and depression since 2010.
It offers several Internet-delivered cognitive behavior therapy (ICBT) courses that target anxiety or depression, alcohol misuse and adjustment to chronic health conditions.
ICBT involves clients reviewing educational material online (for a period of 8 weeks) and corresponding with a therapist over a secure e-mail system.
ICBT is evidence-based and has many advantages, including availability and convenience. The service is free.
