PACT stands out from other National CBT Accreditation bodies in that it has played a vital role
in training, teaching, implementation and scaling up of CBT at national level and so far, remains
the only example of implementation of CBT at national level in global mental health. The research

for development and implementation. The coordinator will also be responsible for selecting a team
in consultation with the manager research & development and the President.
