Cognitive Behavioural Therapies (CBTs) are an increasingly multi-disciplinary field as recognized all over the globe. These therapies have proven efficacy across a range of physical and mental health conditions, and key preventive and promotive health issues. CBT is now recognized as an evidence-based Intervention by the World Health Organization in their 2022 World Mental Health Report. As the world grapples with the post-pandemic effects of Covid-19, there has been a surge of mental disorders and physical illnesses. As populations grapple with the growing burden of illness and threats to well-being in various facets of life, there is an urgent need to take stock of what works and for whom and deliberate on the best models of health so that we can move swiftly towards amelioration, early intervention and prevention.

The high income and low and middle income countries need to come together and mobilize scientific knowledge towards better utilization of services so as to promote wellness and resilience in communities. As the world becomes increasingly diverse the emphasis on collaborative efforts and acknowledging culture specific illness, symptom manifestation, and treatment has also multifolded. Therefore, this 8th Asian CBT Congress attempts to provide a platform towards a cross-fertilization of knowledge, ideas and innovative solutions for the best ways to move forward. Health and illness exist more on a continuum now than ever before and the most cost-effective, robust, quick and long-lasting solutions are the need of the hour.
