Contextual Behavioral Science and Global Mental Health: Synergies and Opportunities

In JCBS Vol. 6 Issue 3, Ross G. White, Jennifer Gregg, Sonja Batten, Louise Hayes, & Rosco Kasujja reflect on the important contribution that Contextual Behavioral Science (CBS) can make to Global Mental Health. The paper explains how ‘Therapist-free’ interventions are an important GMH strategy. CBS can help promote mental health across the globe and PROSOCIAL approaches can build ‘communities of support’ for enhancing wellbeing. ACBS members can read it for free on the member portal.
