Unfortunately, many individuals with psychological disorders must wait several months before they are able to find an available therapist. Additionally, due to factors such as worry about stigma, the wish to solve problems on one’s own and shame, many individuals do not seek psychological help. These factors result in a large treatment gap, which may be reduced through the increased availability of self-help interventions (e.g., bibliotherapy, online therapeutic interventions).
