World CBT Day Opportunity: Promoting Mental Health in an Age of Uncertainty
World CBT Day, April 7th:
A Unique Opportunity to Showcase Your Work on Promoting Mental Health in an Age of Uncertainty
World CBT Day is an annual event sponsored by the World Confederation of Cognitive and Behavioral Therapies. It is timed to coincide with the World Health Organization’s World Health Day and to reflect the importance of the behavioral and cognitive therapies to global health.
The goal this year is to have a global set of presentations directed towards the public or others who may be interested (e.g., health care providers, policy makers) using different social media platforms. If you have a brief podcast or presentation that addresses Promoting Mental Health in an Age of Uncertainty, would you be willing to do a Facebook or Instagram Live presentation? We need volunteers to address the following:
- Issues generally related to uncertainty
- The psychosocial aspects of anxiety and threat
- Evidence-based strategies to manage stress and anxiety based on CBT principles
- How and when to seek help from qualified providers
- Other issues that may have particular local interest related to this broader theme
We are also looking to connect with local social media personalities around the world who produce or promote CBT-related content to help spread the word about World CBT Day and inform their followers of the prerecorded and live presentations planned for April 7th. If you run such a social media account or have connections to those who do, please use the contact information below to let us know. A full listing of World CBT Day events and presentations will be distributed for promotion in the days leading up to the event.
A slide deck that includes talking points and possible questions is available. It can be posted or used as a starting point to generally discuss the topic of Promoting Mental Health in an Age of Uncertainty. Although the slide deck is provided here in English, we encourage you to translate it into other languages and dialects to make the presentation as accessible to as many members of the public as possible.

In your response, please put World CBT Day in the subject line, the title of your presentation, the topic area to be covered, and the platform you intend to use. This information will be collected and sent to the WCCBT as an archive. Thank you.
