Key takeaways

  • What we need in the future of CBT
    • More mechanistically targeted interventions
    • Personalized or matched to individuals
    • Scaled with fidelity by harnessing technology

Mechanistically targeted and personalized intervention elements that are matched to individual needs and adapted as needs change over time, delivered digitally or by clinicians, that can be scaled up through online tools and artificial intelligence technologies, offer a future in which delivery of evidence-based care will reduce the global disease burden of mental health by more than 40%.
