Over 70% of the youth population does not receive adequate treatment for their mental health problems. Long-waiting lists, social stigma, high costs, and rigid treatment delivery approaches contribute to this treatment gap. Single-session interventions (SSIs) are a form of low-intensity treatments that are designed to deliver maximum therapeutic impact in one session. SSIs have been shown to be effective in reducing multiple mental health problems.

We also discuss the development of two SSIs which were created around evidence-informed principles for SSI design.
