Social anxiety disorder (SAD) is one of the most common mental disorders in Western countries. The 12-month prevalence of SAD in China is much lower (0.2%) than in Western countries. However, it translates into an enormous number of people in China (approx. 200 million adult people) in combination with a huge unmet need for treatment of mental disorders [1]. Internet interventions might be an easily accessible and cost-effective way to deliver evidence-based treatment for mental disorders to people who otherwise never would have the opportunity to receive effective treatment.
