Welcome to the University of Tennessee’s Self-Help Library. Feel free to read through and/or download any of the materials you see here. Self-help materials are not meant to be a substitute for therapy but can be an excellent source of information to help individuals with mental health concerns or needs.

Thanks to all of the wonderful Counseling Centers who were so generous with their materials! Their willingness to share resources has made the development of this resource possible.
