Abstract

Advances in precision treatment promise to greatly improve the extent to which therapies for mental disorders are better matched to patient characteristics. At the same, we need to ensure that more readily disseminable and available nonprecison treatments are further developed as well. These treatments refer to standardized interventions that do not have to be individualized and are more readily available. Impetus for this call stems from the treatment gap, namely, the huge difference in the proportion of individuals who are in need of mental health services and who actually receive any form of treatment. The prevalence rates for mental disorders worldwide are high and in low-, middle-, and high-income countries and the vast majority of individuals in need of services receive none. To address the need, we need interventions that can reach large numbers of individuals and especially target those individuals least likely to receive services. Standardized treatments that can be widely applied may be in a better position at present to reach people in need who otherwise receive no care.
