Mental, neurological and substance use disorders constitute approximately 13% of the global burden of disease. This is especially evident in low to middle income countries, where that burden is often larger. With a recent move world wide to focus on the prevention of health problems rather than on management and mitigation, one important focus is on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Because disease burden is largely affected by psychosocial factors, which mediate the prognostic and maintenance of many chronic health conditions, CBT skills provide an important advantage in treatment, management and prevention.
