This is great! To have a collection of links of interventions, arguments, resources etc for each cause is super valuable for people who are not that well versed in the EA-website-bubble.

Looking forward to people adding their resources; S-risks for example are still missing and a quite important consideration. But I imagine someone from the FRI is already writing.

Nice initial analysis to get some ballpark numbers on this. You probably already considered this and I have no insight into the profession but I would imagine therapists often work with patients having mental health problems with lower or very little treatment response compared to depression/anxiety.

You also wrote that the estimate is not replaceability-adjusted but what is your basic estimate about this factor? Similar to the replaceability of medical doctors? My intuition is that the amount of therapists is more limited by the number of therapist offices than by the supply of eager psych students. But I also haven't had a detailed look into Lynette Byes model yet to see if it's mentioned there.

Oh, I didn't expect Pinker to hold that position; it's quite disappointing. But it's hopefully a topic we will see addressed in a future conversation with Sam Harris who should push back on the "AI cannot be a threat"-narrative. Have you tweeted/mailed/whatnot him this response?
